Some people are too loyal to the components over the functions.
I believe they're called fanboys.
I can help you out here, Pat.
*STEVE* wants you to buy a new computer now.
*STEVE* also wants you to replace your new computer and all of it's software with a newer Intel computer and software next year.
Remember, *STEVE* is all knowing and powerful. You must do what he asks.
Muhahahaha! Come over to the Dark Side, Pat...this GUI business is just a passing fad. If you can't do it in CP/M it isn't worth doing.
I remember toying with the CP/M terminals in high school, in 1984. I had only recently seen WarGames and I decided to impress a fair lass on the terminal next to me by accessing the directory where school records were kept.
We agreed that changing them would be very bad, but she was in awe of my prowess.
She married someone else, alas, but I finally found me a geek of my own. ;O)
I owned a

Mac's suck. Folks who keep the company on life support with a mere weak pulse of 3% of a nornal 100% are just asking to be left out in the cold in the software availability world. Developers don't like to waste there time on a limited market.
What a Macmoonie weenie.
BSD unix... uhm, err... OSX doesn't care what processor it is running on.
Stevie don't care if you buy a Mac between now and next year. His IPod sales together with MiniMac sales to unsuspecting Windows users will carry him through till then.
AHA! There's the problem.....Arkansas. Nuff said.
On the otherhand, mac users will buy ANYTHING that will run on a Mac, even if it's a garbage space invaders game, just so they can fill the empty CD oganizer nailed to the wall beside their Mac someone had bought them for Christmas 10 years ago....
Maybe, maybe not; iPod sales will be a declining share of the market.
Doesn't matter though - this Macmoonie weenie is demanding "corporate sensitivity" and he wants it NOW! Or whenever it's convenient; weenies aren't much able to back up their demands.
You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
Cell phones are already taking that market over, plus give you a couple mins of video recording as well as pics, email, web page etc. What can't cell phone do these days?
I know we finally got a version of the Cisco VPN client that works (supposedly) on OSX.
Maybe others will take up the slack ;-)
As an Arkansas resident I can attest that Pat Lynch is a socialist. That being said- I love the article- I have been a Mac guy since 1989- I now own 4 (I love Tiger) and I have been loyal except for that dark period when I got a thinkpad with Windows 98- thanks goodness I came around. I think without Apple there would be no Rush Limbaugh. Thanks goodness for Apple!
It's sad that some people aren't as impartial as the OS.
True from a logical standpoint, but where will the arguments go that said Macs had superior performance because of their processor?
