Macs keep on marching up and up.

Why does Net Applications account for MacOS and MacIntel separately when, unlike the versions of Windows, their functionality is identical?

Of course one might like to know relative share between PPC and Intel machines, but it's not like they're different operating systems.

I don't mean to imply sinister motives, but it does make one wonder.
