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.

As a few others have pointed out, I doubt Apple gives a damn about browser market share. Here's the deal:

1. Choose AJAX, as rendered by WebKit, as the 3rd party development platform for the iPhone (http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2007/06/11iphone.html)
2. Provide a WebKit environment that every developer with a Mac or a Windows box will have easy access to (http://www.apple.com/safari/)
3. ???*
4. Profit

* I suspect the "???" in this plan is going to be "sell iPhones as fast as you can make them, and with a healthy profit margin to boot." But I am one of the faithful--your opinion may vary.
