    An often-quoted distortion, this is.

    In 1995, Apple had its best year ever, selling more machines than it ever had before. Unfortunately, Windows 95 came along at the same time and moved so many PCs it flattened Apple's percentage share of the market.

    Vista has the potential to have a similar effect, but, somehow, I don't think so this time.

    Must be an HP calculator fan. They can't help but think in RPN.

    I think it will be initially quite painfull for Apple but once all the pro software is released in dual binary then things will be much, much better.

    Once Adobe releases CS3 (which I am informed will be the first universal binary by my supplier) then that will be the green light for me (and probably many others).
