I'm going to use some language that offends some people here, and for that I say it's tough to face reality but it's true. What does Apple have to lose? I mean seriously the OS is built on a BSD kernel so most of the hardware support is out there. Not to mention that companies will supply their own third party drivers if need be to make their products work. Apple zealots who drink from the tit of Jobs will continue to buy Apple hardware because it looks better then the Dell or eMachine. Yet people who arent as financially off, or more conscious about the value of their dollar, will go get their own computer, and buy a copy of OS X as well. This isnt about market share, its about choice. For all the hags that whine about Microsoft being a monopoly for bundling IE, well look at Apple! Want to use our OS? Buy our hardware! If that isnt a monopoly then I dont know what is. According to the latest financial call, apple sold less than 1.5 million Macs so far in the year 2006. I bet Dell sells that many in a week or less. Ive had the pleasure of reinstalling Mac OS X once, and seriously it couldnt be easier. I mean they could seriously slap it in a box, and it would work fantastically! Now I havent tried the illegal form of OS X yet. Personally Im fine with Windows just as it is. 10.4 was a great OS but the three applications I live in dont have adequate equals in the Mac world Im sad to say. So while some may label me an apple hater, no Im not. I used an Intel iMac for 2.5 months, and then went back to my 2 year old laptop. Vista is around the corner, so is 10.5. If the WWDC wows me then I might pick up another Mac, but until then everything I loved about OS X 10.4 is being thrown into Vista so I see no need to get a Mac. Bootcamp is amazing because I can run Windows on a Mac. Thats fantastic but I dont want to spend my money on Apple hardware. Pretty as it may be, I want choice.
