Apple may licence OS X for PC

Apparently there's three companies after a PC version of Mac OS X, but it isn't revealed who, or if they got what they wanted.
This would be a very bad move in my opinion, windows has a massive piracy problem and evry soon there would be a rash of pirated OS X copies. This is not a problem if it only runs on Mac hardware, also the prestige would be lost if mac OS was available on nasty beige pieces of crap. initially the boxes would be novelty, come at a premium and be high quality, but that wouldn't last forever.
The article also reveals that way back when MS bought 150 million dollars of stock in Apple they made a good deal, because that stock is now worth over a BILLION dollars. Think you can escape MS by buying a Mac? Nope.
