    Not a competitor?!

    Then why is it that iTunes is rocking and leading the digital music downloads industry. How is it that Quicktime is a de-facto standard for video in most video shops as well as Final Cut Pro being the must have piece of offense to Avid etc...

    Why is it when Apple's OS X systems come out with or annouce new technologies, spotlight, GUI hardware accelleration, AKA Quarks Extreme and Core Video coming out.

    What about the iPod being owned by like a good majority of the folks who own a mp3 player on the redmond campus according to a Wired story and others...

    What about the Xserve,.... they seem to be selling well in the market they are competing for. How bout that Mini Mac.... that is still making quite a buzz, over a month later... now naysayers of HDTV, have to shut up with the recent HDTV speed booost of 10.3.8 to make it a HTPC, or home theater PC.... not to mention it is great for Switchers...

    Now I could go on and on, but would leave that for other folks.... Apple being competition to MS,,.. of course, but they will not say so as it puts Apple in the spotlight as being able to stay neck n neck with some things with big bad Microsoft.

    competition... when you worry about market share. M$ is obviously not worried about Apple putting them out of business. In fact they will assure Apple's continued existence if they can, so they have a free R&D Dept.

    Yup, I agree, definately not a competitor except in the online music world, which is only a 'fraction of a smidgion' that Microsoft takes in daily (Haven't heard how their service is doing, still beta?.

    Definately a nice R&D department though...

    Not a competitor in 1995

    You have to remember that this comment was ten years ago. This was when Windows 95 was released. Calm down people. This is an irrelevant and outdated comment.

    Gates sees Apple as...

    competition now, after the sting from the anti trust lawsuit issue. It is in Microsoft's best interest these days to ensure Apple does indeed continue to exist, so Microsoft can try and worm out of "you are a monopoly" claims, and thus the claims they areabusing monopoly power.
