MR Friends- While I was at the bar tonight with some buddies, the topic of Apple came up. We started talking about what "rumors" were around lately and all sorts of Apple blabber. Anyway, a friend mentioned that Apple has a monopoly as much as M$ on allowing people to create/sell an OS for a computer, and I lashed back and said, "Apple provides their own computers and Operating Systems, why should something that works almost seemlessly well need some outside company to offer anything different? Microsoft bullied there way through for Windows to come with every PC, blowing out OS's like GeoWorks." He replied, "It doesn't matter, Apple has a monopoly and that's that." Worst debate I had. Can I get anyone to back me up and also debate with this issue, I am curious to get some responses here. Granted I know I might not have all the facts... I am a loyal Apple consumer and I was trying to defend its 2% market share. Cheers.
