I really don't give a fuck what you release it in because I can run it in
Virtual PC, or real PC or Sparc or NeXT or whatever. That isn't the point.
The point is a majority of web developers are doing their work on Mac's.
And the W3C, the "standards" body is releasing software that the majority
of web developers can't run. So how effective a standards body is it that
ignores a majority?

Also, I'm glad to see personal prejudice doesn't enter into your thinking.


P.S. I thought this guy asked to be unsubscribed?
