This has stumped me for a bit: the rumor that M$ is building a new OS from stratch to be released in 2005. If these rumors are true (I'm assuming they are), then in what ways can Apple outdo M$? What are the hidden advantages for Apple for M$ doing this? What are the disadvantages? TRANSLATION: What's to prevent M$ from stealing Apple's great ideas again with their next OS release? Please let me know what your thoughts are on this. Thanks!
