Mac OS X Whenever we talk about Mac clone makers such as Psystar, we all more or less accept as a fact that Apple is selling copies of its Mac OS X operating system at a price lower than it would have been if Apple did not have a hardware business. Even though we treat this statement as fact - recently, I've been wondering: where is the proof?

Apple sells a lot more than just OS X. You're forgetting Aperture, Final Cut and Logic. These are widely regarded in the industries they target and considerably more expensive than OS X.

I'm going to bet OS X makes up a minority of Apple's software sales.
