I believe Dave is correct, OSX on cheap hardware would put a major dent in Apple's market. Bean counters always win. Perhaps they believe market penetration of their software will help them sell more boxes but i believe just the opposite. Look what happened to SGI when they (and others) ported IRIX apps to NT in the late 90s.
I not particularly enamored with OSX in it's current execution, but i do like the direction Apple is going and i don't wish to see it destroyed.
