Apple's MacTel transition: why did they do it?

In 2005 I was pretty sure the Intel transition was really about digital rights management. Well, it's been almost two years, and so far the main hardware/software DRM enforcement (Intel Palladium renamed) are all on the Vista side.

Terrible thought -- could I have been wrong?

Well, the iPhone and 10.5 aren't out yet, so there's still a chance of redemption. If they don't show a Palladium-like hardware/software DRM lock I'll have to admit I was wrong!
