Response to: When will the OS be free of the hardware?

Think about it though, Apple is in a unique situation to where they can change to the market place very quickly because they make both the OS and the Hardware. That is the reason why Apple was the first major company selling/pushing 802.11 aka Airport. This makes Apple a very serious contender in the computer market because of the swiftness to adopting new hardware into the OS. Supporting all the various forms of hardware is one of Microsoft's worst headaches and the biggest headache to building your own Windows based hardware.
