  • Editorial: Does Apple have the mettle to fight for Mac success in the Pro market?

    Nope. 

    Based on past history of just abandoning anything that takes a modicum of effort 
    it would be unwise for those who are not of the Apple Sheep cloth to put much faith 
    in Apple being consistent with any product at this level.    You only need look at 

    1.  The demise of the Xserve server and RAID 
    2.  Apple acquiring and doing nothing with PowerSchool. 
    3.  The neglect of iBook Author despite the small but fanatical fan base  
    4.  Aperture’s slow decaying death 
    5.  OS X Server turning into a toy 

    Apple’s spent their money on AI companies and other ancillary technologies but they haven’t spent much effort 
    into growing their Pro apps beyond routine small features and maintenance updates. 

    I’d trust Apple if I had a few workstations to purchase but I’d be wary with committing to anything more than that. 
    Sadly, I have to agree. And you left off Apple’s bizarre abandonment of WebObjects while simultaneously declaring Objective-C as the preferred development language moving forward.
