Besides, if people really want OSX then their only option is to buy a Mac, which makes Apple more money.

5 Lets fact it OSX is the only os you would ever need. As we all know A Mac can run windows and linux.
So apart from the sales of real Macs dropping what is the down side for Apple?
Apple is a company that is in business to make money and I think the money made from selling OSX for PC's would far out weigh any losses of sales of real Mac's.
Apple sees itself as a hardware and consumer electronics company, and selling OSX for PCs would put a serious dent in Mac sales.
The biggest complaint I have about Apple's lineup now is that the Macbook is "too good."
That is, there isn't enough of a performance gap between the Macbook and Macbook Pro to justfiy spending the extra money on the Pro for most people - and there's too much of a price gap between the Macbook and entry level Celeron, core, and AMD powered laptops for people who have an eye on their wallet during tough times to choose mac.
The Macbook needs to be a computer version of the Mac Mini that can tackle the masses of entry level laptops out there.
Celeron T1500, with integrated intel graphics, for instance, selling new at a $699 price point.

Ultimately reason is Apple wants your money as much as it can get
Monitor of Mac is IPS, it's good but you can get as good as it with Dell IPS monitor for just half price
