    No Mac that ever came out was the most technologically superior desktop OS at the time it was released, period.

    The fact that you thought it was is just more evidence of the power of jobs' reality distortion field.
    In 1984 and for years afterwards, what was the biggest selling operating system for PCs? Correct, MS-DOS. Mac OS was superior to DOS. I realize you had to change the subject to another topic to avoid the truth. May Steve rest in peace. Enjoy your griping. I am now done with this thread. Snarf on! LOL!

    Typical Apple user... Make some half cocked point that is based on nothing and then run away.... If Mac OS was superior to DOS, why did DOS outsell Mac OS significantly? Why did anything Mac continue to live in the shadows? What is it that you feel makes an OS "superior"?

    Typical market fundamentalist position... why do superior media formats die compared to inferior competitors (think beta vs VHS)? It's not always a superior product but better marketing and strategy.

    I gives a ****. The brutal truth is that I can't feel sad for those kids as they didn't affect my life at all. They're on another continent, life there is completely different.

    As for jobs...

    Jobs only affected your life because your a sucker for phancy advertising.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    No, the market makes apple successful, and it doesnt suit you that apple is successful, so you have to do a mental backflip and declare everyone who owns a mac as stupid. Because you havent used a mac since gradeschool.

    Except for Windows is not dying and nothing superior has been presented. You are correct about one thing though, Apple has not gained success through a superior product, they have simply had a better marketing strategy.
