Oh sure, a lot of people on /. would like to see MS crater; but be careful what you wish for. Do you really want AAPL to be the A no. 1 tech company for EVERYTHING, including your workstation?

Microsoft have no connection whatsoever to my workstation or what I run on it. Now explain to me how their demise is going to change that.

.... If even ONE person did it, it is not a failure. The fact that thousand of self-motivated, self-paced individuals take advantage of world-class education systems, all for free-- it's by definition a success.

Most people want their thinking and learning done for them. There is no magic cure for this, alas.

One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
