Apple is history!
Jobs can't save it any more than coul Scully or Amelio

Face it, The Dark Side of the Force has won on the desktop and its too late
for Luke Skywalker

Leave Oracle and SUN to be the next targets to be trampled by the Win

However, there are plenty of oportunities for Inferno where Windows in any
flavor is very poorly matched to the requirments in that it doesn't handle
multitasking, networks, security, authentication or portability very well at
all such as multimedia, very compact devices (inteligent phones, smart

and entertainment, scientific instrumentation, POS, etc, etc.

Here's where the real oportunity to develop compelling and profitable niche
Inferno applications lie.
