How much will Apple's changes affect their market share &A#JD1Tg!d8
Don't forget about virtualization! Except for CPU intensive games there is not much reason to boot into Windows. If you...
Not if they keep their high prices for Macs. Even though the Mac is a PC now, nobody is going to shell out the extra $$$ just to run OS X. OS X is good. It's a fine OS but I don't see people paying up to $1000 more just to run a tweaked Unix distro with widgets.
It depends on the next products Apple markets. If they make their dual booting computers expandable desktops at good prices, they will gain. If they sell their desktops for $1600 to compete with HP or Dell, you will be one of the few. Most people have no need to run OS X. They really don't need to run Windows either but it's the most popular and it comes on the lower priced computer and those computers are of the same quality as Apple computers. Most of them any way.
