Considering Apple's marketshare and worldy place.....

I am consoled by the fact that in a some parallel universe, everyone is seeing the light and Apple actually is dominant. Its just to bad I am not living there, or able to see it.

I just hope that I also am living in a universe where Apple continues to get better and stays around at least while I'm around.

For, we could be in a universe where Steve Jobs dies next year and Apple goes away....the possibilites are endless.

Anyways, I hope that wasn't to crazy of a post. Just had to get that out there.

Yeah anything could happen, like tommorow a huge meteor could hit earth and wipe us all out....Apple does have a future without Steve but the leader would have to be a real visuary person...maybe woz?;)

Makes you wonder: do you really want Apple to be dominant?
Think about it.....

Actually no. IMO if Apple were as big as MS they would be hit by just as many viri etc, it is mainly because of the small % of Mac systems out there that currently hackers etc do not bother with attacking them. And I'd like it to stay that way :D

I do believe that if OS X were as widespread as Windows that Mac OS X would be less "infected" than Windows is at the moment, but it would be significantly more "affected by attacks" than OS X now, that's a fact.
But I like chosing for a Mac to be a real choice. Not a formality when buying a PC. I think you can safely assume that a person who choses for the Mac platform has really thought about his choice, as that person would definitely know about "the other side".
I wouldn't like that to be the other way round. ;)

Wasn't there some competition with a $10,000 reward to hack any Mac OS based web server, but nobody ever succeeded?
