Apple ported Mac OS X to the Intel platform, and in early 2006 started selling Mac Intel boxes for the first time. But not all software included on the boxes -- such as Mac::Carbon and Mac::Glue -- were fully ported to Intel.

This talk will discuss the story of how they were ported, why they initially weren't, and what challenges and obstacles were involved in the process.
