Come on people, you can't have it both ways. If you can't "steal" music, you can't "steal" code. MS "stealing" this code didn't deprive the Open Source community from using the code (i.e. stealing my car), or at least that's the argument /.er use whenever the word is used in conjunction with music and movies. Eat your own dog food.

Yeah, well, problem is they are subsidizing the retail value of the OS with hardware. You get OS X for $129 because they are more interested in selling hardware. Take that away and they become another MS and the cost of the OS jumps. It also becomes big bloated mess like Windows (and Linux, sorry) because they have to support unlimited permutations of hardware.

So... did you ever wonder, do garbagemen take showers before they go to work?
