I mean, don't get me wrong. I have Softwindows from Insignia
running on my SGI O2 at home, but I never understood why
MS Windows wasn't just another windowing system and/or
Let's say that I picked up the phone and called Joel and told
him that the only action his department should take was to
breakup MS. Microsoft Windows competes on it's own; Microsoft
applications compete on their own. Wouldn't that be a good
thing? There's a few MS applications I can't stand, but I don't
use them. In general, I would say they make good software
(some of it even great). What keeps me from using their software?
It's the operating system, stupid. I think it'd be better for
both Microsoft and for the software-using public at large.
The breakup of the phone company was seen as a wild success.
