Editorial Bob Cringeley makes a bold statement in a blog post responding to Apple's iCloud announcement: "Jobs is going to sacrifice the Macintosh in order to kill Windows." He says, "The incumbent platform today is Windows because it is in Windows machines that nearly all of our data and our ability to use that data have been trapped. But the Apple announcement changes all that. Suddenly the competition isn't about platforms at all, but about data, with that data being crunched on a variety of platforms through the use of cheap downloaded apps."

Windows Killer

I honestly don't think thats the case. If Apple really wanted to kill Windows they would work to make Mac OS X an universal OS. They already have a strong following of non-mac hardware users who are making Hackintosh computers. So if they made Mac OS X truly universal and geared for other non-mac PCs, we'd probably see a greater shift to the OSX platform.
