Don't be daft. Apple, with several failed attempts at rolling a successor to OS 9, really didn't have much of a choice but a desperate gamble on BSD. Which, incidentally, has no GPL "show your source code" requirements. Neither condition applies to your little fantasy.

No disrespect to Linux intended. It has shown its value many times over. Linux on Azure? That makes sense, for those who want Azure. More interop? Great!

Windows on Linux? Via Wine 8-/ ? Why?

'sides, monoculture are rarely a good thing. Linux and users benefits from the competition.
