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.

There are better applet type products out there for Windows than Dashboard. I wouldn't think anybody would use Dashboard on Windows, unless it was bundled without permission with iTunes. Konfabulator for example.

if I want to use a simple little app, why would i want to switch to an entire other desktop? I wonder why Mac users even put up with it. Please, don't wish that on Windows users.

I think Safari on Windows will be a good thing, even if I never use it (and probably won't). More choice is better. and it won't fail, as Mac users all over the world will install it on their Windows boxes (if they have them) and their bootcamp installs.
