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.

RE[2]: LOL Gasse..

Member since:

It was almost there. Of course, Microsoft shit their pants and started threatening OEMs

lets get this straight:
be entered the x86 market with R3.0 that did run on as good as no hardware
with R4 they broadned their possible audience
with R4.5 they started to gain momentum amoung geeks
and with an underdelivering R5 they killed off all their revenue, switched to BeAI and later complained that they ran out of money (and don't get me started on the crappy distribution here in austria and germany)

be killed themselves, they didn't need ms for it
