For many years I thought that Apple's OS business was dead because they lost and Microsoft had won. Today it's a little less clear again. The reason is that so many of Microsoft's customers are unhappy with Microsoft pricing, and there is a new willingness to entertain new concepts, new ideas, new products, that didn't exist before.
