Microsoft & Apple Sign 5-Year Software Pact
2006-01-11 16:04:37Apple Computer Inc. won't thwart users from loading Microsoft's Windows operating system onto its new Intel-based Macintosh computers _ but don't expect Apple to start offering a Mac running Windows.
"That's fine with us. We don't mind," Schiller said. "If there are people who love our hardware but are forced to put up with a Windows world, then that's OK."
What this maybe to some Apple users a disgrace for their tiny niche little world been jumbled up with the Windows shit that they never wanted it in the first place. Nonetheless it would be wonderfull for Windows users that they can now enjoy better looking notebooks and pc's while having windows running in them.
Though they might be some compatibility issues with hardware manufactures and chipmakers. Thus the 5-Year contract with MS & Apple. Hopefully its for the best of both worlds.
It may be ironicly similar case for Apple users on what Palm had done with Windows Mobile on their Treo lines. Its a disgrace. Im seing windows are now going into every single hardware company out there. Hope they are doing it right.
