NO .. that's not what I'm saying.....
OS X isn't an alternative for anyone other than Apple.
The ONLY viable alternative for OEM's when Windows is gone will be ... drum roll ... wait for it ... you wait a little longer but the drum roll continues for what seems like an eternity ... out of nowhere, and totally unexpectedly, a marching band marches by then off into the distance ... drums are still rolling, but you cannot explain where the sound is coming from, you find this mildly disconcerting but you wait anyway ... a solitary clown walks by with a confused look on his face, and for some reason he appears to be dragging a rubber effigy of Margaret Thatcher behind him, but as quickly as he arrived he's gone ... you scratch your head because now there's a confused look on 'your' face too ... the drummer has given up, put the drum roll on a loop, and gone home ... a plane flies overhead, you look up to see if it's an RAF flyover or something but it's not ... you notice the crowd has thinned a little but the drums are still rolling so you continue to wait ... meanwhile the crowd are still dispersing ... suddenly you realise those damn drums have become REALLY annoying, specially now you're stood all alone ... the wind blows a leaflet past your feet and you can't help but pick it up, you expectantly turn it over hoping for an answer ... and ...
You still waiting ?
Sorry i thought you'd have given up by now and gone home with everyone else....Linux of course.
<-- there's your answer
