This is what I was alluding to in yesterday’s post. People showing up for deals on other stuff – and checking out Macs! – rather than lined up to buy Vista. Even a comparison (with photo) of the Tiger launch a couple years back. Read more »

On the Flickr blog, I found this story about the way Microsoft selected their wallpaper images that were to appear in Vista. The story is interesting enough (consider how you’d choose only a handful of images to be the defaults!) and worth a quick read. The […] Read more »

Microsoft’s Windows XP successor, Windows Vista launched today. As it seems some in the world of blogging feel, it should be driving more people than ever to the OS X platform. Sure, that’s poking some fun at Microsoft, but behind every joke there’s some truth… Anyhow, […] Read more »

So there’s buzz that Apple may charge for Boot Camp functionality in 10.5/Leopard. I’ll be slightly surprised if this turns out to be true.
