The rumor mongers at eWeek claim that Apple is running a project to keep current versions of Mac OS X running on Intel hardware. It would be rather silly for them not to do this.

The Mach microkernel at the heart of OS X, and the theoretically clean lines of separation between layers embodied in the Cocoa APIs should make transitions to other hardware exceedingly simple.

The problem is binary compatibility in existing applications. If you have to recompile, you run into the same problem that Microsoft had with Windows NT on MIPS, PowerPC, and Alpha.
