Apple "I think that Apple could be just as strong and good and be open, but how can you challenge it when a company is making that much money?", Wozniak told a crowd in Sydney, according to ITNews. They'd score so many brownie points the internet would explode.

...the best thing Apple could possibly do for its business model would be to sell a version of OSX for PCs, and try to make their way into the mainstream PC market. OSX has an enormous usability advantage over Linux, and plus brandname appeal

I agree with you on the brandname appeal. Hipsters will always be hipsters. But I disagree on the "crushing MS/Windows" thing. Strange as it may sound to you, I've noticed more and more people install Win7 on their Macbooks over the past year. Of course, they keep OSX installed, but many seem to use Win7 more often on it. Whether that's to do with their workflow needs or just a factor of familiarity, I cannot say.

... and it's just pretty

One man's hero is another's terrorist. I frankly can't stand widgety bubbly shiny stuff. Nor can I tolerate fuzzy unsharp fonts.

Probably explains why I've run either Xmonad or ScrotWM/SpectrWM on top of OSX on my workplace's Mac Pro and use them as much as I can. Even rolled back to Snow Leopard just because Lion refused to play nice with those two window managers.

P.S. You forgot #0: "Use some of those immense cash reserves to give a decent paycheck to the workers you've been gratuitously exploiting." Seriously.

All mega-corporations should be doing this, not just Apple.
