Apple I started out as a Mac user in about 1985 in a world which will be totally unfamiliar to almost all readers of OSNews. You wrote out your stuff by longhand, and a secretary typed it on a word processor. If you were lucky and able to manage it, you could dictate it. But you did not dictate into a dictating machine, because these were big heavy and expensive. You dictated it directly to someone who could 'take shorthand'. If you had a PC, it ran DOS. You looked for your files, and moved them around, started applications, one at a time, from the command line, and the command line was not pretty, it was green on black.

If Apple is to survive

Apple will need to open their hardware to cloning if it is to survive. Also it will need to license MacOS X x86 to OEM vendors.

Contrary to those who say they are not going to buy another Apple, I am thinking of buying my first one.
