Great! If this scenario would imitate Apple's current standings then Steve Jobs as president means 91% of the upper-class gree with him, only 10% of the total population, less than 1% of businesses are on his side, none of the lower-classes would "get him", TEKTUD would be demanding he wasn't a US citizen while claiming that "Apple taxes" are too high, and AngusYoung would be burning the flag and destroying Jobs effigy on TV saying it's his right.
Did I miss anything?

This would irrevocably hurt Apple's Mac market. The market where they actually make a profit on PC HW where others can't and the market where MS has to sell 12(?) OEM licenses to make the same profit?
The only way I could have seen this working is by buying Sun and essentially rebuilding a NExT/Sparc Workstation hybrid that uses base version of Mac OS X that is geared specifically for businesses, but backwards compatible with most Mac apps, starting with servers and high-end server services that eventually trickle down into utilitarian black/dark-gray pizza box desktops and towers, that are only for OEMs. A completely separate business offshoot that in no way has the word Mac in it and does not directly, at first, work to make the basic cheap Windows desktops found in offices around the world. Though even that could be multi-billion dollar that could hurt Apple in many ways.
