    Spymac notwithstanding, I agree with Kate.

    And for the first time in history, I agree with Fran.

    Moogs, obviously you haven't been reading the boards, so I will spare you the embarrassment. An insider, oh, let's just call him "Mastergating", has already leaked info that the next version of OS X released at MWSF will be "the 64 bit one".

    What can't Apple top?

    Make a computer that I want to buy. There isn't a single computer that I'd buy from them right now...either crappy expansion or bloated price. $1700 for an entry-level tower is outragous.

    I still like the idea of running WinBlows Apps on my mac...yeah PCs are cheap now, but for a college student having two computers in a dorm room is not that practical (actually three with my iBook). Plus all these freak-ass profs that demand you work on WinBlows or heaven forbid you go to a university where they require you to purchase a cheap compaq or IBM would be cool. I would be like, hey, this Mac runs that cap better than that POS machine does.

    I also think this is technically feasible.

    Compatability would be a shock.

    Really folks- take a lesson from Linux.. unless you find a way to run the same applications that a MS PC can, you're stuck in left field.

    "Out of the box" would be seeing all the fabulous power and security MAC owners rant about driving MS applications.

    I'm by no means suggesting MS is a better platform, but if you want MAC to grow, stop narrowing the scope of the market.

    First MS grabbed hard core business machines.

    Next it was the user interface "theft" -if that makes you happy.

    Games... It's your preferance -but when has a MAC made any headlines?

    Then imaging applications.. perhaps not nearly as fast, but fast enough for a wider market share and nearly all the same features..

    Look at XP and notice that interfaces are swirling closer.

    Cry and stamp your feet over who did what better or first... business has better things to do than listen to that.

    Produce a product that can complete.

    iPod is a year late and propriatary -again-.

    God help MAC if their big surprize is something that we've all seen before. A flat screen monitor or a handheld ain't news. Wireless ain't even news. Segway was only news.

    You can't expand your private planet MAC without giving the Universe something it can communicate with.

    The greatest and most impactful thing Apple could do is join the game.

    Denver, it's "Mac", not "MAC". It is short for "Macintosh", not an acronym.

    Ha ha!

    I predicted/named iPad (to manage Mac servers, too!) in 2002!

    I say that if Apple does NOT deliver a quad G5-based Server with full raid/hot swap/airport-managed via iPad/iWalk/etc, then I will not be blown away.

    If Apple does not deliver a capable and compatible Newton replacement, I won't be blown away.

    If Apple does not deliver another consumer gadget (not PDA) then I won't be blown away.

    Still no mid-level, prosumer desktop/tower thingy. :(
