John C. Dvorak has an article about the possibility of Apple ditching Mac OS in favor of Windows. He believes there is a distinct possibility, and gives some interesting arguments. For example, “Apple has always said it was a hardware company, not a software company.” Does anybody doubt that Apple would make a lot more money if they sold Windows on their sparkly hardware? Sure, they’d seriously offend most of their hard core fans. But tons of people that care about style in the Windows world would love to run a Mac, if it had Windows on it.Personally I think this is all a bunch of conspiracy theory. And since I’m so cheap, I doubt I’d ever buy a Mac, regardless of what OS it has on it.Update: Justin pointed out this rebuttal for Dvorak’s article.
