Apple is _good_ at hype.  Hype sells product.  Sales make shareholders happy.  Apple is a public company.  If I were a competitor, I would be trying to figure out how to generate such hype. :)

Hey, I'm a consumer.  I like my Mac Mini better than the Windows machine at work.  I have better things to do than futz around with Linux all day, etc.  When I like the Windows machine better, I'll buy one for home.  If someone makes a free open source OS that isn't user-surly geekfest and lets me get on with what I want to do, then OK, I'll use that.  Hey, if I liked Brittany Spears better than HW or BOC, I would buy her records too.  But I don't, so I don't.
