Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Apple is already gearing up for a major marketing campaign for the holidays, and if they're able to ramp up demand, and then deliver the system when they say it will be delivered, it could trump Microsoft in a way that Apple's CEO Steve Jobs would crow about for years.

I don't see why Apple doesn't sell the OS by itself. Hit Microsoft while they are down they could grab some market share. Jobs needs to loosen up.

Microsoft makes most of its profits vertically with Office, CRM, BackOffice, etc. Apple has gaps in the business model with offerings to make up for this dependency by the business markets.

Sell? you can't gain market share selling an Operating system these days, you have to give it away for FREE.

Linux barely gains share and they give it away for free, and its a better solution.
