    Glad to see that Apple's taken such a leap, but if you want to discuss Exxon Mobil gouging consumers, you'll probably want to take it to the political forum.

    (I happen to agree with you, BTW.)

    It's ahead of Xerox and that certainly says how they've grown and how the mighty have fallen.

    I really think that they will keep climbing....but I have to say that I hope their market share stays about the same in a way...I don't want the problems of Windows...such as viruses etc :eek:

    I don't understand the desire for ubiquity from some quarters either.

    Having 15 - 30 % of the current marketshare wouldn't hurt them at all and would cause someone with applications to notice that there was another viable platform. Had they done the transition to Mac OS X while they still had some marketshare in the early to mid-1990s, application suites and games might be equal on Windows and Mac OS X now.
