True, but the profit margin on software is SO much higher then on
hardware. Once you examine the possibility of of multiplying your
existing available OS install base by a factor of 20, while continuing
to sell hardware mind you...

Look at microsofts top line revenue versus there profits. Scary stuff.

I agree that this isn't a change that could happen overnight. Still if
the migration to Intel goes well, there are some very interesting
possibilities. A direct competitor for windows would be a good thing.
