Agreed anonymous! I would emphasize that one of the biggest reasons for windows hegemony is hidden in that one word - compatible. apple decided early on not to license the hardware and simply not compete with literally hundreds of companies making pc's.


as an aside - it was only the little sojourn into licensed cloning that woke up the cupertinians to the need for speed. I love my Power Tower 250 (now with a Newer Tech g3) and give it some of the credit for the survival of the operating system.
