Mac OS X "If you can believe what some of the online tech prognosticators tell you, Apple's real 'Top Secret' plan is to have Mac OS 10.5 Leopard out by Macworld Expo in January, or perhaps shortly thereafter. If true, it would give Apple a chance to trounce Windows Vista, at least in times of mind share as opposed to market share, assuming the latter indeed comes out around the same time. I think some of the folks who expect an early release ought to reconsider what they're smoking or drinking."

It has nothing to do with "balls". Apple is a hardware vendor and it makes no business sense to cripple that. Plus, it would put them in the Windows quandary.. trying to support every legacy ISA card out there. While it is admirable that MS tries to do this, you need to draw the line and say we're no longer supporting your 10 year old 3Com NIC. Apple would get all kinds of criticism from the guy who bought the $29.95 eMachines from Wal-Mart who wants to have everything supported under OS X. Forget it.
