RE[5]: And Apple Allowed it!?!?

You really hate Apple don't you?

I stated that Apple software is available for Windows and x86 *nix and then followed to back that up with examples.

So what if Safari uses webkit. So does Google Crome and Konqurer - all of which are massively different from each other and from Safari.

And so what if Apple only reluctantly ported iTunes and quicktime player. They still ported it (or licenced 3rd party developers to port Apple's software)

And so what if my examples were free products, they're still owned by Apple.

All of your replies have been nothing more than dancing around the fact I stated earlier that Apple software does run on "normal" x86 platforms.
Whether they ported it themselves, programmed the original technology or whatever is completely irrelevent to the point I made.
