Linux vs Apple
by smurf975 on Wed 28th May 2003 19:46 UTC

I think Apple Computer could learn something from this.
People want:

a) Cheap, Cheap and very cheap solutions.
b) But still retain quality.
c) Most big buyers are not interested on the logo on the computer or style of the casing.
d) Choice, being able to use whatever and not being locked into hardware, software.
