Apple tried it in the 90s and nearly went out of business.

And they were still effectively tying the OS to Hardware, you had to buy the Mac clone to get the OS installed not independent OS retail sales.

David - Yea they tied the OS to hardware. But where can you buy a boxed retail PowerPC Processor like you can an intel or AMD? How about a Motherboard to install that chip on? See it would have been hard to build your own mac then anyway.

Sasha yes apple makes a lot more off of each computer they sell than say dell. another reason they dont want to open up OS X which the money they make pays me pretty well so I can't complain

An how long ago (How many weeks ago) did he say that?????

By the way Mac you still haven't answered the question as to why Apple
will not develope an OSX or Panther for the PC.
The "tried it in the 90's explanation just doesn't hold water.  ;D

bob it was nearly three weeks ???

Why apple will not make OS X for the PC

1) Apple would have to support ALL of the the hardware floating out there and as it is now its much easier to only support the software in their hardware

2) Mac sales, if you could install OS X on PCs the sales of macs would hit rock bottom and apple makes a lot of money from the hardware ( the $1199 iMac only costs apple about $875 thats a pretty big profit margin)

Mac
That's about as bias as a report can get.
But since it was written by an obvious Fan, you can't really expect anything else.

You (Apple) also don't take into account that many of us would gladly pay the price the operating system
but, We already have a computer and certainly don't intend to buy another one just so we can run OSX.

Add up all of the $149.00 Apple could be taking in. You might be surprised at how much potential income
Apple is bypassing.

Bob im sure apple is bypassing a lot of money. even after the increased support costs they would still make a killing, but im not on the apple board of directors

When I still worked, we where paid for suggestions which produced revenue.  ;D
Doesn't Apple have such an incentive?
