Apple "I want Vista to be a better OS than it's been promoted to be, but at the same time, I also want OS X to finally receive the public adoption that it deserves. Now is the time for Apple to creatively promote its Macintosh platform with OS X. This is the critical hour, and if Apple is able to take advantage of the uneasy feeling that many have towards Vista, then they could attract an untold amount of new users."

That is entirely untrue. They would completely fail to grab half of the home market. Too many people have applications that are incompatible with OS X, and currently OS X has nearly no drivers. I know if I tried to use my TV tuner card under OS X, I'd be SOL. Apple will have the same exact problems as Linux has in market share adoption, and will remain at numbers quite similar. Most people won't want to go out and buy something that will remove all of their current programs and their current way of life. Apple would just get a couple more geeks who are poorer, and thats it.
