quote: I see Apple drop the price of their struggling, lightweight productivity apps, I don’t see a shot across our bow, I see an attempt to play catch up.
quote: Open formats like HTML breeds brilliant innovation.
quote: No, the heart of this is Microsoft's proprietary file formats, which they purposely obfuscate to make reverse engineering difficult.
quote: Stallman is brilliant and talented. He's also extremely opinionated.
quote: The problem with quoting Richard Stallman is that anyone who might consider him to be providing an unbiased opinion already agrees that Microsoft is the embodiment of evil.
quote: If we had a level playing field
quote: ....Microsoft understands how people work better than anyone else on the planet...We literally wrote the book on getting things done.
quote: The percentage of word processing users who need a word processor to do anything more than WordStar did in the 80s is single digits at best.
quote: And so it’s not surprising that we see other folks now talking about how much “work” you can get done on their devices. Adding watered down productivity apps. Bolting on aftermarket input devices. All in an effort to convince people that their entertainment devices are really work machines
quote: Microsoft: Apple iWork is Less Popular and Less Powerful Than Office
quote: MS crushed Apple before. Apple is only around now because MS kept them on a lifeline long enough for them to recover. They had a nice run with iOS, but they are about to be crushed again. The battle for mobile will soon be between Google and MS with Apple being a niche player again.
quote: That post sounded desperate. Just remember history has a way of repeating itself. You use to argue Apples growing market share. Percentage wise how does Apple look today? Are tablet or phone growth increasing like they use to or are others chipping away at their % of market share? From past posts I you would have thought Apple would be 95% of any market they touched and $1000.00 a share.
quote: You are delusional if you think the tablet software market is larger than the PC software market. Hell, there was probably more money made selling console software than tablet software.
