perhaps it is YOU who dont get it, having blithely rehashed all the
stereotypes of macintosh computers, without ever having ever EXPERIENCED
I began searching your "10% of roads" quote, and found the quip was an
old reference to the Mac O/S never exceeding 10% of Windows' market
share. Somehow this reference was meant to imply that Macs were "not
compatible" with Windows, in the sense that the two could not communicate.
In almost every sense, this was proven false, the exception being that
you could not install a Macintosh application in a Windows machine.
One could STILL read documents created by Macintosh applications on a
Windows machine, and vice-versa.
10% pf market share is not a big deal.
Does Porsche want to lower the cost of THEIR cars to compete with Honda
Civics' market share?
see- it is YOU that "don't get it".
