Like I said much earlier on, I would hope that after Jobs is no longer CEO, that they would agree to let other MFG's use OS X. OS X is a very sexy, very streamlined OS. It not only caters to those who need simplicity, but also offers a lot of options to power-users as well. I moved away from the Mac platform for a few reasons, one of them being hardware availability, one of them being gaming, and another being that I could build a custom rig to my preference.
I think it's quite immature and stupid for people saying that Macs are for people who are too ignorant and are sheep. People forget that Macs are not in the custom-computer market, they're in the average-consumer market, much like HP, Dell, Sony, etc.
To be honest, I think Windows 7 is just as good as OS X in a lot of areas, which is also why Windows 7 is my main operating system now. That and it allows for more gaming opportunities for me.

So... what's your argument again? Weren't you saying how rife with problems Mac hardware is? Yet you're saying to be a competitor you have to cut corners?
When you break it down, you can't look at PC vs Mac. You have to go by MFG. Being that their hardware is more reliable than some of the other manufacturers out there does mean that it's quite reliable, even though the hardware is similar, and in some instances, the very same as some other PC MFG's.
