A x86 client perhaps would be the end of EQ Mac as we know it. They probably just would give us the PC code before start over from scratch.
The better plan is to make the client into a Universal Binary app. There will be a lot of tweaking to get it there, but it might be easier than starting from scratch.
An x86 client would boost our sub base, but open us up to more of the crap that the PC side has to deal with, in addition to more of the hackers/thieves as we saw a couple years ago.
This will be something that I'll be bouncing off my SOE contacts over the next couple of weeks to discuss the best course of action. Once I get the ball rolling and have some feedback to share, I'll create a separate thread to keep people up to date on any possible discussions.
