Technically Speaking All in on IT

I like Apple's computers, and if I had a few thousand lying around with nothing to do I might buy one. One thing I was never a fan of though, was Steve job's arrogance and open hostility towards Microsoft when on stageĀ - and in advertising with regards to the delays surrounding Longhorn. Now it seems the shoe is on the other foot and I love these quotes from some of the Mac bloggers. From a ComputerWorld article:

"I've gotta admit, this puts Apple is an awkward situation, given how much flak they gave to Microsoft for their delays with Longhorn." -- irmongoose, MacRumors Forums

"Listen carefully. You hear that sound? That's the sound of the thousands of engineers at Microsoft attempting in vain to suppress their laughter." -- welshandrew, MacRumors Forums

"All of their whining about Microsoft delays is coming back to bite them with delay of iTV and Leopard." -- Puddleofudd, Computerworld

I might buy one too.. to install Vista on - it's interesting that the Mac fanboys have been silent on this, I've also heard rumours that the iPhone is far from ready and battery life is appalling. mmmmmm.

slip slippety slip slip - Apple say it's so they can make sure Leopard is up to scratch, so they are admitting they can't manage two similtaneous releases whereas Microsoft managed EVO and if we're honest about it they managed it pretty well.
