That is very well said.
If OS X or a version of it was allowed on Non-Apple machines, then Apple,s desktop/notebook sales would plummet. And Apple might even be forced to become like MS. Where they have to forgo their hardware sales and just focus on high priced software with huge margins just to stay competitive.

And would all the extra software sales make up for the lack of hardware sales? I do not know. My guess is probably not. And also the ipod/iphone halo effect might be greatly diminished. And also there's the having to configure OS X for a million different chipsets and computers and not the few they do today.

And that is something I'd never wish to see Apple becoming.
