Apple Dan Kusnetzky, Apple program vice president, spoke to PC Pro News at IDC and said that Apple has no plans to support booting into Vista on the new Intel Macs. However, a Microsoft spokesman said that Microsoft would have no problem granting a Windows licence to Apple, in exactly the same way it currently provides licences to Dell and HP: "Microsoft would support Apple the same way it supports every other PC manufacturer." But Dan Kusnetzky said it would be difficult to know who would support that machine if Windows was running on a Mac. However, "no doubt someone will work out how to run Windows on the Mac, even if Apple doesn't technically support that."

When Apple is sitting on the OS everybody wants to run, why on earth would they license the OS from Microsoft? Clearly, it should be the other way around...

I have NO desire whatsoever to run OSX. I've been using Macs longer than I have PCs, and I still never feel very confortable when using the Mac OS. For some reason Windows (95 and up) and to some extent KDE just feel much more intuitive to me.

Now if Apple were to offer a Windows machine... I'd definately consider a laptop from them the next time I am in the market. I still wouldnt buy a desktop from them (or anyone else for that matter). I prefer to build them myself.
