Macworld UK - PC makers want to license Mac OS

"Apple has to fight off three of the biggest PC companies, sick of the security bugs that plague Windows, wanting to license the Mac operating system.

The revelation came in a Fortune magazine interview with Apple CEO Steve Jobs, described by MacDailyNews as 'an embarrassment of riches' because it is so full of information."


Sounds like a really good idea to me. There would be some technical issues at first, however I think that with a <a href=http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx>Hardware Compablity List</a> (like so many other vendors have published) it would be a good thing.

Apple hardware would still be superior - the <a href=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerPC>PowerPC</a> chips are better then Intel/AMD's, and Apple has the market cornered on Cool.
