Right now, and as much as x86 users do not want to admit it, the Mac OS is already better than Windows in its modern look and feel as well as its functionality. I see too many smart people with Mac laptops nowadays.
While I don't necessarily agree that Apple will open up Mac OS, I do agree that, if they did, their hardware sales would increase over current volume.J.C. Dvorak said:If the world changed tomorrow to 85 percent Mac "OS x86" its laptop sales alone would triple overnight.
Makosuke said:I honestly don't get this guy. It's like he's got two or three personalities, or several ghost writers who completely disagree with each other.
One minute, he's writing something that makes a reasonable amount of sense, like this article commenting on the potential lameness of WinVista (or whatever it'll end up being abbreviated). The next he's spouting vitriolic anti-Apple rhetoric, and a minute later, he's commenting on some curren technological phenomenon from a perspective that's so amazingly uninformed you wonder if the sum total of his research is what is intern mentioned to him over coffee.
I'd cite links, but all you have to do is read over a few of his past columns, and it's pretty obvious.
Still, on this one case, I mostly agree with whichever personality is writing today.
Actually, he is a real (that is, physical, legal) person. He used to be hard-core Mac, and in fact co-starred with Jean-Louis Gassee on an Apple Software Developer's CD dating to the early 1990s. There were some audio tracks on that CD and both J-L G and JCD spoke.Chaszmyr said:I agree completely. Dvorak is either a nutcase, or is a pseudonym being used by multiple writers.
