    Huh, developers are comming to the Mac, Apple is adding to the open
    source community too. The range of software for the Mac has never been
    so great.

    No, it is exactly right, there would be no point in having more
    suppliers than the market can withstand. You may as well start blaming
    ford and toyota for the lack of lambourgini dealerships in NZ.

    It does not display at all well using Mozilla - on Linux OR on Windows.

  6. Those are generic hardware standards, not PC standards. PCI has been
    supported on Macs for years. USB is supported, and firewire.

  7. Macs use the same memory standards as PCs IIRC?
     
    Patrick Dunford, Jun 20, 2004
  8. No. There is a high degree of market resistance to Linux.

  9. The Internet isn't owned by MS, yet it has taken off.

  10. In other words, not very much.

  13. Well it makes sense to use an "obscure" hardware platform... makes
    piracy less of an issue... security by obscurity kinda.

    Apple has always said its possible to port, but they are happy with PPC, and
    they have been reported as having in house test rigs on Intel

    "It's perfectly technically feasible to port Panther to any processor," Jobs
    said at a meeting with financial analysts. But Jobs said the company is
    happy with IBM's PowerPC family of chips and feels the performance is "quite
    competitive."

  17. Name one mass-market product that has come to the Mac from Windows
    since, say, the introduction of OS X.
    Whatever happened to MacWrite, MindWrite, FullWrite Professional,
    AutoCAD, Claris CAD, MacDraw, Omnis, dBase Mac, Helix, SPSS, SAS, Adobe
    Premiere ...

    Who cares. The cool name in reverbs is "Lexicon". And their products are
    cross-platform, as far as I'm aware.

    Dbase was around before the Mac was.

    Some of us remember when Dbase 2 was new.
