Do I think that Apple will out sell Windows 7 and PC equipped with Windows 7, NO.
I could never bring myself to pay for specialized hardware with a well known logo. Guess that's why I've never bought an Alienware machine.
The average consumer will never realize that Apple is just a hardware company selling a specialized OS. The fact that you have to pay twice what the hardware is worth, for that specialized OS, is what drives me nuts.
Windows 7 will outsell OSX, just on install base. Like the OP, I have to wonder why people bring sales stats into this.
Oh, wait, that's right...it's because Microsoft is about to launch a new operating system, and Apple wants to remind people that they are out there...
