Editorial "Despite its current misadventure with Linux, Sun isn't in the generic desktop computer business. The Java desktop is cool, but it's a solution driven by necessity, not excellence. In comparison, putting Mac OS X on the Sunray desktop would be an insanely great solution for Sun." read the rest

Apple is a HARDWARE company, that makes great software on the side.

Apple rely's on a tight hardware software intergration, Something DELL, HP, Levono, etc can NEVER achieve with MSFT as the ruling desktop OS.

Dell can more easily become like Apple and boost margins, simply by working with a linux distro to closely tie hardware and software.

I see the future of computing where companies don't try to outdo each other with just software but by controling the entire user experience. Something that CAN'T happen with MSFT as it currently is.

Viruses will have a tough time because each core OS will be written for a different architecture. You can limit damage and enhance your overall performace, by merging different style chips in modular clusters. Certian chips perform different functions faster, break the tasks up to the chips that will best perform those tasks.
