It just appears that APPLE doesn't
want to enter or stay in the software business.
On the contrary, it appears to me that Apple wants out of the
HARDWARE business. The PowerPC gives them an excuse to port
their system software to PC clones, on the road to jettisoning
the old Mac hardware. Once everything "that sells" is ported to
the PC, they simply stop making boxes.
You (evidently) don't make big software bucks doing even
high-quality Lisp programming environments; you make $$$ in software by
drawing pretty fish on the screen or catering to the business market.
