What the World Needs Now: An Intel-Based, Linux-Powered Mac?
David Coursey has a fantasy: an Apple-designed Intel box capable of running Mac OS, Windows and Linux.I hate to be late to the party, but the recent discussion between Jim Louderback and Rob Enderle about Apple makes some good points and misses others. To read their views, click here. For example, arguing over whether Apple should be in the PC business is lunacy. You can argue whether Apple should be in the PC hardware businessI think yesbut I cant imagine why Apple should abandon the computer business entirely. And I even have this fantasy in which Apple turns PC hardware on its head, which Ill share in a moment.
If Apple did dump Macintosh, what business would the company be in? I presume this means the server and storage farm businesses would also go away. That would leave consumer electronics and maybe some software, which would have to be rewritten for Windows.
