    Yup, let's hope it buries Apple and the Jobs reality distortion field isn't strong enough to overcome common sense.

    Can't believe me saying this, but good job, Windows. Why do we always end up having to choose between two evils?

    Yeah, funny that. You can bet your boots that if Linux were to somehow prevail (yeah, sure :rolleyes:) it would be horribly corrupted by vested corporate interests. So one loses whichever way they turn, just less in some directions eg Windows.

    Recession? Economy? Yeah, this hurts apple. I'm sorry but this news story is a joke. Author is trying to spin PC spending with Apple spending and it just doesn't work.

    Agreed... :toast:

    Also, Apple is using some of this same hardware that PC users use now. It (Apple Macs) even runs windows and MS loves that!

    They just need to let go of their proprietary nature and free their people.

    IMO; Apple is afraid to compete in a non-proprietary field of competition.
    Sorta, like it is my stadium and I will make the rules. This way when you come to watch Apple play, you will pay thier rates/price for tickets, concession and or items not allowed in the stadium.

    That it's the same CPU is irrelevant. It's the way they lock down their products with propietary DRM to force their fanbois who pay them lots of money, to live in a straightjacket. That's what's wrong with Apple and why I won't touch their products.

    It's mean he agreed with you.

    Yeah, Apple should make OSX run on any hardwares!

    Guys please understand that it isn't Apple VS M$, the real battle is between Linux and Mac OS's.
    Trends for Android based mobile OS's are fantastic considering Apple's headlock on the smartphone market.
