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 and x86
by John Nilsson on Sun 2nd Jan 2005 06:11 UTC

To port OSX to x86 would make as much sense as porting a B&O DVD-player firmware to a SAMSUNG DVD-player. None at all.

Q: What is Apple's mission statement?
A: Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning desktop and notebook computers, OS X operating system, and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital music revolution with its iPod portable music players and iTunes online music store.

Notice how they use words as inovation and revolution. It is not part of their mission to dominate the market. They simply wants to be the best.
