Apple At its Worldwide Developers Conference today in San Fransisco, Apple discussed its upcoming operating system, Mac OS X Leopard. As always, Steve held his keynote speech wearing his well-known ensemble. The keynote dealt mostly with Leopard, while keeping the most interesting part for last. Read on for the details. Update: Read more for a screenshot of Safari running on Windows... Barely.

A little competition doesn't hurt.

Never has there been anything wrong with a little competition. So for that reason alone it's a nice thing to have an extra browser available on the Windows platform.

The reasons for releasing a Windows port seem obvious. As I see it more and more people on the Mac side make the switch (from Safari) to Firefox. Apple needs more Safari users to make sure that web developers remain incented to deliver decent Safari support.

Now that Safari has been ported to run on Windows, it seems obvious that parts of Cocoa have also. This is a good thing for Mac users because this might mean that iTunes will be ported over to Cocoa as well. In it's present state iTunes is one of the least mac-like programs presently available from Apple for the Mac and I would surely welcome this change.
