Is Microsoft dying 625
While Apple certainly did not invent the mouse (or the GUI), it is common knowledge that Apple popularised both - just like they did with USB. Remember the "real men don't use mice" (image of man...
Why do you need to ask? Because your pronouncement of the "whole industry imitating Apple" is a product of your ignorance? Some pre-date the MS mouse, some came out at the same time, some came out later.
I can't believe you think you have room to call anybody else "stupid."
See what I mean about you having no room to call anybody else "stupid?"
Just how many times do you need to have it repeated to you that Windows can be operated from one mouse button, or even no mouse at all, before it sinks into your rock-like head?
Being that Apple did not invent the mouse, and being that all other platforms use mice with more than one button, it shows that NOBODY in the industry is imitating Apple.
Then you outrightly lied. That claim has often been posted to CSMA, as you well know.
Nobody will be surprised when you fail to substantiate that claim.
No. Fantasy. That's why most new things in Mac OS X, like fast user switching, arrows on aliases, etc., are copied from Windows.
Who cares about Longhorn? I'm waiting and hoping for the rise of Linux.
As for the "Apple and Linux" thing, Apple is no ally of Linux. Apple is going on the scrap heap right along side of MS.
More of your ignorance. Windows NT came out in 1992.
You've been given the definition of what a modern OS is enough times, but then there is that problem of your rock-like head, isn't there?
Mac OS X is BSD with Apple GUIs bolted on top.
In your ignorance-based viewpoint.
No, I haven't. Maccies are the only ones hollaring about Longhorn. I couldn't care less. It will get here when it gets here. Windows XP users aren't like Mac OS users, waiting twenty years for an OS with PMT and protected memory...
Yes. See Peter's answer.
There was no need to bring up people who dabbled in Linux.
Why is was mentioned in response to remarks about Linux is anybody's guess.
Yes, Linux is used for replacing Macs and Windows.
To Linux, which runs on the hardware they have.
A sale made by your compebreastion is a sale lost to you. Besides that, in your bizarre outlook, MS not making a third world sale counts as a loss, but somehow Apple also not making that same sale doesn't matter. Weird.
