After the disapointing announcements in Tokyo, is it too early to start speculating what's going to happen in July in NY?

How constructive is it to call someone an "RTARD"? If you were in the same room with the person who thought MWTY disappointing would you call them a retard? It never ceases to amaze me how rude and offended people get when they are in their cars or on discussion forums.

So when's the move to the Enterprise?

I predict that sometime this year (probably late in the year) or possibly next, Apple will announce a big move on the Enterprise.

The tools they'd need to do this are:
  • OS X 10.5 (or something a little more mature like that)
  • BIG Servers (like the old Network Server, but with multiple G5s)
  • Small clients (like the original iMac... something very cheap for the average enterprise desktop; perhaps with no monitor)
  • A big enterprise-oriented expo to announce at.
  • Possibly some clone licensing or something. At least something that would allow for some flexibility between all the various uses for PCs in the enterprise
With tools like Darwin, Office X, .NET for OSX, WebObjects, and all the kajillion high-end NeXT-originated and Unix-ported tools available, OS X is so close to ready to make a big move on the Enterprise.

Right now, a lot of corporations are starting to get really pissed at Microsoft for their lame XP strategy. With something as robust as high-end Unix with stupendously-easy-to-use OS X interface on top of it (and with a powerful open-source version for their servers)... they really might consider deploying some Macs and seeing how it goes.

Is there any sign that Apple's getting ready for this? If so, where would be a good place for them to announce such a strategy?

Ah, I see. Because Apple didn't release a 3GHZ G5 at MWTY we should just all complain about it for the next 2 months.
