Xbox 2 and the Forbidden Apple ?
>> True, False or a Joke this was posted on TeamXbox.com :
When we told the world that long-time rivals Microsoft and IBM were teaming-up for Xbox 2, everyone thought we were kidding or clinically insane. One month after that, the partnership was officially announced and we sat back and smiled.

Now, once again, it’s our word against logic. Our cracked TeamXbox spies (they’re everywhere) recently came up with some interesting info in regards to Xbox 2. Believe it or not, the Apple G5s you see in this picture are going to Redmond, and they won’t be used by graphical designers or any other media content creators. They’re going to be used by programmers; not for Microsoft’s MAC products, Virtual PC or any other Mac OS software.
Instead, these three palettes of Dual 2.0GHz G5s are alpha kits; Xbox 2 alpha kits to be more specific.
Yes, the forbidden Apple entering the Microsoft paradise. Hard to believe, isn’t it? We know.

No one will believe us, but don’t worry; time will tell. By the way, in case you're wondering; yes, the Xbox 2 will use a PowerPC architecture.

TeamXbox.com was forced to remove the story from their website.
We are aware the picture comes from michaelhanscom.com (posted by a now fired MS employee on October 23, 2003). The question here is if these G5's were used for Mac development/support (IE, Office, ...) or if they are used for the Xbox2 like TeamXbox claims.
I leave it up to you to decide if this story is true or not.
