In fact, that was the basis of the $150kk that MS put into Apple stock, which is now worth 1.5kkk. The major difference in available s/w is in games and certain niche s/w, most of which exists for repair or modification of existing MS glitches (ie, the one that cleans up after Windows leaves a bunch of garbage files when it quites w/o removing them, and eventually causes problems). If you remove all these s/w types from both platforms, the difference is slight. But that doesn't account for the superior products on the Mac side, such as Nisus Writer, as one glaring example. MS has hundreds of dedicated Mac programmers on staff, and over 1/4th of MS income comes from Mac s/w. I think not. Roger - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
