    Just hope Windows don't get too close to El Capitan because of:

    OS X 10.11 El Capitan: Bugs, bugs, and more bugs | ZDNet
    Yes it sure makes a mockery of, "It just works". I've had a couple of iPads as well and believe me they have their problems as well, especially in Safari.
    i think Apple is standing on the edge of a cliff at the moment, if they turn the wrong way they'll go over it, fanboys are getting restless.

    I think you're getting your operating systems mixed up, there is no vast Mac App Store, that's IOS, there are probably less in the Mac App Store than the Windows App Store.
    Very few people use iWorks, most use Microsoft Office, unless you count young kids on their first Mac, I belong to a Mac forum, most use Bootcamp to install Windows 8 and now 10.
    I am not saying that their OS is better but just as good in many aspects. Honestly, I like iWorks (it just not for kids), and certainly more affordable. There are problems with all operating systems. I doubt many really bootcamp their Macs for Windows (a few for experimenting), I can't see them taking their spendy Macs just to run Windows.

    All I was saying is that it has all of the core features, and works very well with iPads & iPhones (though experiences may vary). Obviously this is a windows forum, so talk of Mac products, would not be received well. For my findings and opinions, it was much nicer than I thought it would be, and offered a lot. I could see keeping 1 Microsoft PC and converting my others if it were available. Must be the kid in me.

    In any case, it is a mute debate, since i seriously doubt, Apple would ever design a OSx (PC) version.

    "There are problems with all operating systems. I doubt many really bootcamp their Macs for Windows (a few for experimenting), I can't see them taking their spendy Macs just to run Windows."

    You would be totally wrong about Windows on Macs, a lot of people buy Macs because they like them, but they need to do serious work on them as well, that's where Windows comes in.
    When it comes to compatibility there's only Microsoft Office, nothing else, plus of course other programmes that only run on Windows.

    Just for fun I thought I'd have a look to see how many people could be interested in running Windows on a Mac, on the Tutorial there are 182,000 views and many other discussions about bootcamp with over 10,000 views, bit more than a few interested by the looks of it.
    Thats only one site, there are plenty of others.

    Apple's HW is too expensive to be used only for Windows to run on it. at best can be used as dual boot W/OSX. If Apple made OSX for general PCs they would have to charge pretty money for it, probably more expensive than Windows to offset losses they would incur on HW side.
    So, I can't see Apple making an OS for general PC population any soon. There's bigger chance that Google or somebody else would make an OS to challenge MS and Windows to any degree, even Linux is far away in that field.
