Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

I don’t get it and never have, why is Apple fighting Psystar in fact why didn’t they license OSX to Dell, Acer, Lenovo etc, etc soon after they changed platform? They missed an opportunity to be the dominant OS and I think MS has shown that a company can be viable if it concentrates on software and OSes.


Agreed. I don't hold out any hope that Apple will ever license OS X in the same "free-for-all" fashion as Windows - but I think that (very) selective OEM licensing would be consistent with their business model. In other words, allow third-party OEMs to offer OS X as a BTO option - but only on specific, Apple-approved models (that must meet specific minimum standards/requirements).
