I was at the Boston Computer Museum today. They have an exhibit which is
a giant computer, 2 stories tall. There's a 6-foot trackball, and kids
are actually using it to play games on a giant (projection-TV) monitor
with giant speakers. On the simulated giant CPU case, "Pentium Processor"
and a giant "Intel Inside" logo are displayed. You walk through the
computer, and inside are exhibits on the parts of a PC: ROM BIOS, Sound
Card, Pentium Chip, etc.

As I was leaving, I heard a LOUD Mac startup chord. I turned around, and
one of the guides was restarting the system. On the giant screen: MacOS.

I asked her whether she thought it was odd that the box said Intel and it
was actually a Mac inside. She said "Oh, Intel donated the hardware. The
Mac is just the software."
