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.

Not to argue with your main points (I have no real faith in Apple's ability to write decent Windows apps), but I'd stop short of calling Bonjour "crapware". You may not want it, but it's a boon to anyone who wants to have network services without having to pick up any network admin skills in the process.

For anyone who doesn't actually know what Bonjour is: http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/bonjour/ Basically, the marketing-speak boils down to "self-configuring, auto-discoverable services". iChat uses it to automatically discover all other iChat clients on the subnet, iTunes uses it to automatically share playlists, AirPort uses it for automatic file and printer sharing, etc.

So no, not useful to everyone, but certainly not "crapware". Though I do think the name is stupid.
