Steve Jobs in a recent interview with Fortune magazine in the US has commented that he and Apple are fighting off PC companies wanting Apple to licence its OS because they are stick of the security bugs Windows is plagued with.

"Most tantalizing of all is scuttlebutt that three of the biggest PC makers are wooing Jobs to let them license OS X and adapt it to computers built around standard Intel chips. Why? They want to offer customers, many of whom are sick of the security problems that go with Windows and tired of waiting for Longhorn, an alternative."

This might suggest why Sony was involved with the MacWorld Expo last month, where Sony's President, Kunitake Ando, said: "We [Sony] make great hardware, you [Apple] make great software"
