Windows 95 (the UI that started what we know now), came out in 1995, while the os X, the UI that started what macos is today, came out in 2001, but it was more comparable to XP, which came out in late 2001.
So I can't say I agree with your statement.

From what I saw in rumors, they already work on replacing intel with their own CPUs based on ARM.

Apple do not make CPUs.
They relay on performance and availability from others (intel or AMD).
If their supplier can't provide faster and more powerful CPUs, and they can't replace supplier easily, what he stated is correct, even if it sounds like an excuse.
They can't replace intel because AMD do not have TB3 support yet, so if they sell less macs because the new ones aren't a big enough performance increase, that is, at the end of the day, because intel can't make faster CPUs.
