Notes from a heretic


William Ahearn

Decades ago, when Saturday Night Live was actually funny, they had a skit about Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek of Nationalist China, whose government was stranded on the island of Formosa, getting up every morning and Madame Chiang, his wife, would nag, “Is this the day that we will attack the mainland?


After having watched Steve at the WWDC this morning on my computer just so I could see what all the fuss is about and being a former PC user myself (Yes I still have one) there are just some things you can't do on a mac yet, and that may be an incorrect statment on my part.

I'm impressed with the next step for Apple/Macintosh it will be a truly intregrated machine. The best OS ever by any company and being able to run on the Intel processer. Microsofts Windows has not been able to that with out crashing or getting messages like this program has preformed an illegal operation and will be shut down and the more Mr Gates trys to patch it the worse it is.

OS X the best OS ever with an Intel CPU. I can hardly wait. AS it has been said its the OS and the machine working hand in hand that make a great system. Apples been doing it for years. Microsoft has been stumbling around in the closet ever since windows 95 and still can't find the door!!.

I think myself that this is the best move for Apple/Macintosh and thats my 2cents.


I don't understand what your point is in relation to my blog. This isn't a thread, it's a blog. So whatever currency your 2¢ may have in the outside world it really isn't valuable here, Especially since you're making assumptions that are not stated in my material. For some reason -- that I can't fathom -- everybody is jumping to the conclusion that I'm opposed to this shotgun wedding. I'm not. All I'm saying is that what Steve Jobs and Apple are spinning is not what is really happening and if anyone took a minute to actually look at the situation they would see that. I decided to do it as a blog instead of a thread or as part of a thread to avoid the knee-jerk reactionary responses. (Among which I do not count yours.)
It's that simple.
