Apple Now this is material that piques my interest more than anything: insights from one of the bigger names in the industry. Jean-Louis Gassee debunks the "Apple-must-license-its-software-or-die" myth by looking back upon the past - and if you don't know who JLG is, then please take that dunce hat and stand in the corner for three hours, contemplating your existence. Note: OSNews has a bug with using diacritic marks on the front page, so JLG's name is misspelled. It is correctly spelled in the article body.

Good OS bad OS

I guess in the long run a good OS is what people use. iPhone OS is tied to iPhone but it has a fairly sizable market share. Android is nowhere close to it, although it must be noted that Android was released later. If I had to buy a phone today, I'd go for an iPhone, because the package is awesome (except the AT&T angle, of course).

Another example is Mac OS X. Its a good OS that's why people use it, and its market share is improving (despite the netbook boom).
