Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "With [the Win95] release, Apple was tested - and they failed miserably. Not only did I warn Apple to take 95 more seriously, I also accurately forecast the massive decline that would happen to them if they didn't do just that. The MS platform has changed dramatically and it is much greater than just the operating system these days. Apple, on the other hand, hasn't advanced nearly as much but they are predominantly consumer-based today and less vulnerable to this comparative weakness as a result. Just like the last time, they will largely leverage hardware this time, and, as before, they will be up against companies with resources that eclipse their own."

No, Monad is not dropped. But, simply, the apps need to be able to take advantage of Monad, and as such, Microsoft's own apps need to be recoded, which will take time... but Monad will still ship with Vista if not, then slightly after as an add-on.

Yes, maybe it might eventually be shipped, but does it run bash scripts? Can I use remotely it via ssh?

Is Microsoft still playing catch-up, or what?

How come all you Microsofties are getting so excited by 10-year-late catchup features - that BTW won't be shipped yet anyway?
