Apple If you have Apple's QuickTime media player and/or iTunes installed on your Windows machine, you might want to keep an eye on apple's Software Update tool. Apple is once again using the update tool to push unwanted software onto users' machines without asking for permission.

RE[6]: what?

Member since:

I am just curious, but given that you can run any Windows or Linux program on a Mac, what is the software that you say is unavailable? In my experience a Mac platform running on Intel chips (ie any Mac made in the last few years) is the most compatible platform I have ever used. I often have the Mac OS, Windows (XP, Vista or 7) and Linux all running at the same time on my Mac and I can switch between them with a click of the mouse. I am hard pushed to think of any program that won't run on a mac so please help me out by telling me what programs you think are unavailable.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. When I said Macs, I meant Macs OS's, not OS's in a VM. Notice that I did say that Apple isn't really responsible for all the applications that are only available for Windows; it's just that not all developers are willing to write a second version of a program for Mac users.

I wish that Apple would make it legal to install their OS's on PCs, because then you could buy good hardware for less money. Then again, they would probably jack the price up even higher.
