If Apple was bought out by an open-source friendly company, with you at the helm, play armchair CEO. What would you do?
* What about iWork? Port it to Linux? Windows? Leave it be?
* Quartz? Port Quartz to Linux? Is it better then X?
* Keep the stockholders happy. Where would you make money? iPods & iPhones? Final Cut Studio? iLife for Windows?
* What would you open source? Quartz? Aqua? Cocoa? iLife? iTunes?
* Anything you would discontinue? Macintosh? iTunes? iWork? Apeture?
* What about Macs? What would be their advantage, if you made OS X opensource and/or ported it to PCs. Would you keep them going.
* OS X. Open? Closed? Part-way? Available on PCs or not? At what cost?
Stay tuned for part II, where I want to know what you would do if you had unlimited power in an antitrust ruling to break up Micrsoft.:)
