But we’re not taking that comparison. Because we’re not talking about Microsoft in this regard. We’re talking about Google/BlackBerry in this regard.
Why would they just ditch MS-DOS…
1. Because they did.
2. Because “not ditching command line” DOES NOT EQUAL “must insult GUI”.
And why would they invoke the Osborne effect by outright stating that Macintosh's GUI is better than MS-DOS?
That’s nowhere near the only other option.
So yeah, I just don't see what I'm wrong in.
He said that Microsoft insulted the GUI while building their own. You claimed otherwise. You were wrong.
I said that Microsoft didn't hate the GUI like the first guy I replied to said, and they really didn't, considering their GUI efforts and this little unknown OS called Windows.
No, he said nothing of the sort.
