Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

That's likely as Apple has been known to ostracize those who cross them. Surely Schwartz had an NDA he "forgot."

From Slashdot by Raindance:


Jonathan *had* to know he might get burned for spilling the beans before Steve. Jobs has a track record of being harsh, almost vindictive in his dealings with companies which betray his trust.

Exhibit A []: Samsung runs their mouth about being selected to supply software to drive the next-gen iPod Nano. Apple turns around and drops them.

Exhibit B []: ATI runs their mouth about some specs for new macs before Macworld. Apple removes ATI boards from their computers and refuses to offer them as a build-to-order.

Simply put, don't try to scoop The Steve.

BTW: Steve never said Apple was the first with 64bits. He only said that Leopard is going to be the first MAINSTREAM OS with 64bits. For Windows, 64bits is not standard. Even Vista Business which came with my brother's ThinkPad was not 64bit. When he contacted them, they said that despite not having mentioned it was 32bit, he should have known because it was default and 64bit had driver problems. I think Jobs got this right.

He said Leopard was the first OS to run 32bit and 64 bit apps side by side. This is what I was talking about.
