Not use Microsoft?
When I was doing admin work I could put multiple clients on a Linux server and know that they wouldn't impact one another. But when it came to the Windows group it was a strict one function per server rule so that a misbehaving application wouldn't impact others.
5c was never a budget model
It was only a business analyst guessing before it was launched that said the 5c would be a budget model and everyone jumped on the bandwagon.
Of course they aren't going to run Windows on ARM in the data centre. They need all the horsepower in the CPU just to run the OS, GUI, anti-virus, etc before even putting on the application.

Was he afraid that all of the press photographers there might somehow miss him and he might not get a photo of himself at the ceremony?
That will work so well
Creating applications to the lowest common denominator of four operating systems is going to work so well. It worked out great for Java didn't it? (And yes I know this is a different approach to the problem but Java apps never looked truly native because you were always working with a subset of the OS's features.)
Re: 1000 System Admins?

Not thrilled about this move Steve
One of my favourite applications, FreeMind, requires Java. I won't be upgrading to Lion if you aren't going to let me run it. I hate having to run a VM just for a particular application. Leaving it open takes up a bunch of resources. Starting up a VM wastes time.
I'm not going to complain about how iOS is so closed. It's always been that way. But I will look somewhere else for my hardware and software if OS X moves towards iOS. And I'm sure that many others will do the same.
