Dell is so jealous of Steve Jobs it's not funny. He knows that for all the money he makes, Dell could go away tomorrow and nobody would care. He knows Steve is the only CEO that inspires and innovates in the industry. The rest are just suits pushing generic boxes.<br><br><br>
Well, that's the standard Apple user line for the last 20 years. I've enjoyed the fact that Apple makes the whole widget over the years, I just think that time is going to end. <br><br>Now that Apple has switched to x86 boxes to be their "Macs," licensing the OS can't be far behind. Perhaps a few years after the Intel switch, perhaps just with a few OEMs for certain product lines. <br><br>Apple is a hardware company, but Apple is now the iPod company. I just think the focus has changed. We'll see if I'm right!<br><br>
Small note Apple tried cloning twice NOT just once and that did not work either.<br>Might have been before your time the first clones were from Radius and Daystar. Daystar was the first to offer 4, 6, 8, 12 Multi processor Macs - The Quad Daystar would only set you back 10,000 bucks, sweet deal at the time.<br><br>Radius target market was the low end, Apple was middle and Daystar was over the top. Daystar went belly up and Apple bought their multi proc technology which was used in Apple Duallys.<br><br>Apple and Dell is not a good idea for two reasons.<br><br>1. Even Dell could not convince my company to re-write their expensive proprietary software<br><br>2. Apple would have to compete with Dell to sell hardware - so you wanna real cheap crappie Macs ? cuz thats whats gonna happen<br><br>
