Except you know the book of the movie, which is based on the script said that Windu was having a hard time holding onto his lightsaber and that it almost flung out of his hands. So he may have not be able to kill Windu at that moment, but as soon as his lightsaber was removed he would have been fried.

I dont care what the book says. The movie had Windus blade getting closer and closer to Palpatines face as Palpatine was melting his own face off. With lucas commenting Windu was deflecting Palpatines lightning and that Palpatine was exerting himself.

Yes but so was Windu, who was obviously struggling with it if you watch the scene.

Windu could not have won that fight, Sidious was winning the Lightning vs Saber fight, if Anakin hadn't intervened, Sidious would have toasted Mace.

However if hypothetically Windu did win the fight and kill Sidious:

The war would have continued on, between the now somewhat Leaderless armies for quite a while. The Jedi would take over the Republic until a new chancellor was elected and they would make the "emergency war" chancellor powers Sidious had been building up were re-disseminated back into the senate. The separatists would have continued the war until the Republic offered the separatists leaders good enough terms of surrender (mostly selfish terms that spare the leaders and their wealth, in exchange for them giving up their droid armies to the Republic).

All in all leaving a fractured and scarred galaxy, but the Republic would have a stupidly powerful and huge Clone+Droid army to try and restore order.

Mace would have ether fallen to Darkside outright or had crossed the line come right back, if Mace just crossed the line he would have been removed from the Jedi council and spent years in mediation eventually regaining his Light and his place within the Jedi. If Mace fell properly to the Darkside he would have been confounded by Yoda, who ether alone, with Anakin and/or Kenobi would then fight him, defeat him (or kill him if Anakin is the one that beats him) and then imprison him.

Anakin would have become a Jedi Master, with Kenobi and Yoda his only mentors now (Sidious removed), Anakin would have finally been able to become a more peaceful person, more so after witnessing the birth of his children. Of course there would have been some unrest when Anakin had to give up the children to the order, but it would have been short due to Kenobi's guidance and Anakin being a Jedi Master would be able to keep updated on their status.

Padme would be give up her position to raise her children for a while before the Jedi took them, after which she would have served in an advisory capacity to both Queen of Naboo and the new senator.

Anakin and Padme would probably have been allowed to maintain their relationship, on advice between Kenobi and Yoda that trying to break them up would be a massively (fall to the darkside) bad idea, but would both keep a close eye on the relationship and provided guidance to ensure Anakin remains peaceful.

Yes, but Lucas did say that Windu had Palps on the ropes. Just because Windu wasn't doing it easily doesn't mean he wasn't winning.

I never said he wasn't winning at that moment, but it would have went either way from the look of that scene it was just the matter of who could last the longest...which could have been Palpatine. Who seconds later went "UNLIMITED POWER!!!!!!!" Plus, Mace left himself wide open when he went for the final blow...so there was the opening for Palpatine if he sensed Anakin wasn't gonna do anything.

If this ended my way, you'd better believe there'd be a headless Palpatine, an emotionally shaken Anakin, and a room flooded with Twi'Lek b*tches, all with "Mace" on their chests.

I believe George Lucas said it in the commentary, I may be wrong, but I have heard several people agree.
