Member since:

Apple is alive today because of a pact with Microsoft - Apple doesn't allow their software to run on normal x86 computers, and Microsoft allows them to live

Safari? iTunes? Quicktime? TrueType?

Or how about their non-windows software that runs in "normal" x86 computers (CUPS for example)?

And that's just off the top of my head.
