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."

I dont need 23 email client and 47 DVD softwares to fetch 10-15 emails and for writing 1 dvd in a week!
What really a bottle neck is Cost of Apple machines. Recently i got a new HP notebook for $800 and with same screen size and RAm and disk storage Apple notebook would have costed me $1800 .. I guess u must have got my point?
I'll rather buy $800 notebook and $200 OS... Apple is making huge amount of money by not only selling OS but their main money money is coming by selling hardware and they are not ready to give up that....
But the fact here remains important that most of the apple hardware are "state of the art" ... people who can afford to have apple hardware are not going to stop buying the same ... but they can double the sell of OS by supporting other hardware... Ofcourse the down side is.... support activity in Apply will increase...
