Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

I think the post talking about developing your own operating system as being the way to differentiate your product is correct. BTW where would the PC industry be now without Microsoft/Windows? would 3d graphics be anywhere near as capable as they currently are? The cheap consumer grade 3d market was made possible when Microsoft killed SGI and Nvidia/ATi came into being. Would the same level of competition have been possible in an Apple dominated market? or would Apple have simply chosen a winner, and then that manufacturer would have kept prices high and performance low?
