Will Apple Adopt Windows?

19 02 2006

John C. Dvorak: “Apple has always said it was a hardware company, not a software company. Now with the cash cow iPod line, it can afford to drop expensive OS development and just make jazzy, high-margin Windows computers to finally get beyond that five-percent market share and compete directly with Dell, HP, and the stodgy Chinese makers.”

It might be true that Apple has always been a hardware company, but it’s mostly the software (i.e. OS X) that makes me buy Apple computers. If I had to run Windows on my machines, why not buy a Sony Vaio instead of a MacBook? Or I would probably run Linux instead.
