There are other threads not attached to AI articles?

Type headless Mac or similar in the search field and you'll be swimming in threads.

I just went to the root of the forum list. I never knew this was here. See, Lundy, all this off topic posting led to new discoveries. :-)

I don't think we can really say.

But don't you think Apple does its own marketing surveys?

I would hope they learned something since trying to force stores to take all 4 original iMac colors, or coming out with the Cube.

True

Always possible!

- it seems like an easy way for Apple to pick up some sales, which must be a good thing?

We can keep playing musical chairs with the reasons either way, but only Apple knows.

With desktop sales in the toilet for everyone, it's possible that Apple simply isn't interested in investing more on a desktop design. Who knows what they have been doing in their labs that has been abandoned for some reason or other?

Again, I must remind everyone that we are not the general public Apple is after. If Apple doesn't think it's a good idea, it will never see the light, no matter how loudly we protest.
