2) Get people so excited about the new OS that they'll buy a new computer that has the new OS pre-installed.

Folks, this is no big secret.
They are a company after all and if they didn't make a profit how would they be able to pay the staff and have money for research and development.

They're no different to any other company or business, they all want to make a profit.
