Internet & Networking "Apple's Safari is making its way to the Windows platform with the serious intention of making a dent in the market. As brilliant as the people are at Apple, I can't help but laugh at their, to put it politely, delusion. Before I ramble on too much, here are my five reasons why Safari will fail on the Windows platform." My take: Safari on Windows isn't here to take over the Windows browsing market. It's here for the iPhone.

Bundling Safari with iTunes and installing it automatically, akin to MSN Messenger installing Toolbars, desktop search and all tons of sh!t is marketing, how?

Apple don't have to market Safari/Win, they only have to bundle it.

Bundle it, how? They don't distribute Windows, they don't do PC's (in the Intel-with-BIOS-and-Windows-or-Linux sense), and if they did their PC business would probably go the way of Commode's, possibly taking their Amiga^WMac business with it.

Assuming they do want a (big) share of the Windows bowser market, which is not true by now, IMHO.

'marketing' was in response of claiming how good safari is and how many times it has been downloaded (but i think the world will become 'chosen' ;)
