As for the Apple connection, Schwartz said that the practically every Sun employee owns an Apple desktop at home. "We would love to partner with Apple,' he said. "They're everyone's favorite company, and iTunes is really cool."

These things are always nice to hear. :cool: I would love to hear it out of Gates' mouth, though. "I use a PowerMac G5 at home, and I love it!!! Erm......I mean........its "okay" when compared to Winblows.....um.....I mean, Windows. :(" That'll make my year.

So would anyones opinion of Gates change if he did come out and say that he used Apple products at home and that he did enjoy using them?

More like:

OP: Hi Mr Gates, is that a PowerMac G5?
MG:No, its not. Its a very nice pc
OP: But, it looks like its running MacOS X!
MG: Oh no! Thats that latest version of windows. We invented that metal interface - Apple just copied it.
OP: If you sya so then it must be true
MG: Of course, by the way - do you like it? We are going to sell the low end version with no use at all for US$300.
OP: And the real version?
MG: Unsure - US$600 is looking fair considering the time we put into innovating in the computing industry.
