Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

[All your final paragraph showed was Apple being ahead of its time rather than being an all our flop.


Apple wasn't "ahead of it's time". The Mac was an underpowered expensive toy that sold very poorly. It was by pure dumb luck Apple survived. The credit goes to the laser printer, Aldus and Quark for creating the DTP market. This was not something Apple had even anticipated.
