An Apple that ran Windows natively...
Authored by: NeXTLoop on Feb 27, '03 09:57:12AM

Would be the death of Apple. Anyone remember IBM's OS/2? It ran Windows software "natively". The reason developers continued to make OS/2 versions of their software was.... well.... they didn't have any reason to develop OS/2 software. Why should they when they could just develop Windows software and OS/2 customers could run it just fine.

If Apple wanted to include some kind of emulator, say a replacement to VPC, that would be ok. No high performance app ever does real well in emulation, therefore keeping plenty of incentive to keep developing native versions.
