I think it was less than two years from start to finish, and Apple revoked the Mac OS licenses and those companies mostly died. Apple is ruthless and brutal in their dealings with other companies from what I've seen. Screwing over a few hundred developers wouldn't even make them blink.
Actually the first thing that sprang to my mind was PlaysForSure and Zune.
