Apple Now this is material that piques my interest more than anything: insights from one of the bigger names in the industry. Jean-Louis Gassee debunks the "Apple-must-license-its-software-or-die" myth by looking back upon the past - and if you don't know who JLG is, then please take that dunce hat and stand in the corner for three hours, contemplating your existence. Note: OSNews has a bug with using diacritic marks on the front page, so JLG's name is misspelled. It is correctly spelled in the article body.

This is the kind of pointers which keeps me coming back regularly on OSNews.

It is always great to read how some key decisions during the early days of personal computing were derived from then facts and hypotheses about the future. Even more interesting when told by one who many good and some bad decisions.

What I would love for OSNews to do is more than just provide a link to the post and summarize it but also to provide a counter-point; another side to the same story.

Anyways, I've bookmarked the original blog entry so that I could go back regularly and see if ever there will be a similar post about how Be put all its limited resources towards BeIA and eventually lost market traction.
