Never said you did.  That was a segway into my own thoughts.  The main reason I disagree with you on the MAC OSX posibility is that the hardware is more expensive than i386 based systems. But this is where I get into 'theoritical' and opinion based thoughts.  I have not owned or worked on an Apple product since Apple II days.  I still see OSX surviving in the Ad and graphic arts world though.
