I had a go at exactly those points plus more on the site but as for people leaving because of OS 9 going... I think it is unlikely. There are still people running OS 7 because they believe it to be the greatest, most stable OS of all time.... in the same way, people can continue to use OS 9 but they will be the minority.Originally posted by jelloshotsrule
a couple quotes stand out
"Apple has been all but forced out of the business and educational markets"...
is that really true? i thought the edu market was pretty decent for macs...... and getting better?
"If Apple insists on using its operating systems to sell hardware, Enderle said, it probably would be better off bundling the OS with the hardware."
hmm..... you're saying that the os doesn't come with macs? you're an idiot
" In fact, Giga has predicted that OS X is helping to drive Apple's market share further downward, toward 2 percent. "And then," Enderle noted, "it becomes hard to take them as a serious vendor." "
ahhhh yes..... os x pushing it down..... hmmmm.
some people might leave cause os 9 is going away... but that's not apple's fault, it's the developers. plus, i think many more folks are coming over due to x... ahh well
