Wow, it sounds like the main stream tech media might be catching up to what the users who have moved from Windows to the Mac OS X have been saying for a few years now: “It Just Works”:
- Business Week: Apple’s OS Edge Is a Threat to Microsoft
- Computer World: Windows is ‘collapsing,’ Gartner analysts warn
Not that this is anything new to a large number of people…but when a Gartner analyst makes a warning like that against one of the analyst industry cash cows…or was it just stating more of the obvious. When you read through the details, the Gartner analyst are essentially telling Microsoft to turn Windows into the MacOS. Only Apple already swallowed the horse pill of starting from scratch and upsetting their development community 8 years ago. It would be interesting to see how Microsoft handles the same situation (which it must).
