"Real Competition for Microsoft" Ha! Microsoft OSes are the butt end of the computing world. Everything on a Windows platform requires more than twice the work accompanied by a lot of frustration. It's a very unorganized, easy to screw everything up platform.

Development time on the Nextstep and again in OS X using Cocoa is simply a much better, more organization, well thought out & PROVEN solution.

The application stemming from Nextstep resulted in amazing technology for the time and they were doing it in months not years.

All Microsoft does is copy every other technology out there, screws it up and then charges for it. Look what they did with Java from Sun and Javascript from Netscape.

Dude, the real competition has been out there for a long time where have you been? Mac OS X has an amazing OS with fantastic technology. Compare creating movies, pictures or even programming on OS X with linux or sun or Microsoft. I think you'll come to a shocking realization you have been in the closet for some time......
