Robert Cringley writes an interesting opinion about what Apple should do now that they appear to be stepping into the world of windows virtualization. Topics range from Apple building an aqua port of Ooo to Apple's need to purchase Adobe.

Steve wants Windows applications to run like crazy on his hybrid platform but to look like crap. In his heart of hearts, he'd still like to beat Microsoft on the merits, not just by leveraging some clever loophole. So he needs the top ISVs who are currently writing for OS X to continue writing for OS X, and that especially means Adobe.

There's only one way to make that happen for sure, and that's for Apple to buy Adobe.

All in all, a very interesting read.


EDIT: Searched for Cringley, came up with nothing, too bad his name is "Cringely"...sorry for the dupe

There's a couple threads (official and unofficial) on this subject already.
