I want whatever coffee Apple is pouring in its cafeteria: Since 2001, the Cupertino, California, firm has cranked out four major consumer operating-system upgrades, three more than Microsoft could manage. The latest such release, Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, arrived October 24, only 14 months after its predecessor, Jaguar. The costs of Mac life can add up. If you've paid for each upgrade from Mac OS X 10.0 on, Panther's $129 bill pushed you past $400.
My Cisco teacher is waiting for Apple to port Mac OS X to the Intel world. If Microsoft refuses to enter the BSD/Linux world it would serve Redmond right if Mac did it for them. Maybe then we'd get more apps ported to this world from Windows, too. Why not make money on software from us, too. Maybe it will entice us to save our coffee money toward that Mac laptop in the future.
