I've personally always wanted to try running Mac OS on my PC.  You can
build a PC so cheap now days yourself, so I can't justify spending so
much money just to try out an OS.  Separating their all-in-one package
and moving to an Intel architecture would be a good move I think.  Maybe
more companies will start putting their games and other software on Mac
OS then as well.
