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.

Oh come on, don't you know? It was Microsoft's fault. All of it. Not at all bad management decisions. No Sireeee, not at Be Inc.

I didn't say it was all Microsoft's fault. I mentioned their switch to BeIA right when big media software was about to be ported to BeOS, and there is a mention above about JLG asking for a lot of money to give BeOS to Apple.

Why are you taking personally something that wasn't directed at you? Hmmm?
