Intel AnandTech puts Intel's new Ivy Bridge through its paces. "While it's not enough to tempt existing Sandy Bridge owners, if you missed the upgrade last year then Ivy Bridge is solid ground to walk on. It's still the best performing client x86 architecture on the planet and a little to a lot better than its predecessor depending on how much you use the on-die GPU."

Those two things (MS helped Apple, and MS helped themselves) aren't exclusive.

You yourself almost write how it restored long-term confidence in Apple, a company visibly straying on its path at the time (or even failing as that company - what came of it wasn't strictly the same Apple, but also a corporate coup of sorts from Next).
A company on a shaky ground because of inferior and more expensive offerings - but with a bit crazy followers readily buying them to "help save Apple" ( http://www.forbes.com/1997/08/08/column.html )

And the suit was put to bed in court ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Computer,_Inc._v._Microsoft_Corp... ), there were just some lingering squabble.
