Internet & Networking "Apple's Safari is making its way to the Windows platform with the serious intention of making a dent in the market. As brilliant as the people are at Apple, I can't help but laugh at their, to put it politely, delusion. Before I ramble on too much, here are my five reasons why Safari will fail on the Windows platform." My take: Safari on Windows isn't here to take over the Windows browsing market. It's here for the iPhone.

Or at least just remove restrictions, and say, "hey, run it on a non-Apple computer, but don't expect help from us" - that would still block off most customers, but still allowing those who *really* want to run it, be able to run it.

Its not happening either. Apple also has a reputation to keep, and it doesn't need people start complaining about OSX because it doesn't work correctly on their unsupported hardware. A big part of Apple's value is its 'just works' aura, and you can bet they are gonna do their best to protect it. Reality is that when problems arise, the fault is often put on the wrong thing.
