But not the only part. The fact it's designed to WinHEC standards, as
are all MacIntels, is also a large part of it.
The MacIntels are not without Windows. They run Windows natively.
Calling them Wintel (all caps unnecessary) machines is not an
"irrational attack." It's simply the truth.
It applies in your refusal to see simple logic and facts.
You've already been told more than once that the switch in processor
involves a lot more than just plopping an Intel processor in place of a
Motorola processor. There's support chips involved also, which
together with the Motorola processor made up the heart of a Macintosh.
You imagine you've been reasonable through all this? All you've done
is go into heavy denial when you recieved the facts you supposedly were
asking for, and worse, tried to label them as an "irrational attack."
Sure it did. Apple ceased its production, after twenty years of being
a niche machine.
No, they just switched to building something else. I for one never
said they would go out of business, just that the Mac platform would
die, and Apple would sell something else to remain profitable. I've
been proved correct.
Windows and other processors evolved to take their place, but they
weren't replaced by the stuff their competitors developed, as the Mac
was replaced by Wintel PCs running BSD Unix.
Which are all Wintel technologies.
Since when is stating the truth an attack? The way you're hangin on
misperceptions are why I said you're trying to avoid admitting the Mac
is now a PC, at all costs.
We're talking about whole computers.
Yes they did.
Go to Apple's own site and see them admitting themselves that Mac OS X
is BSD Unix.
Okay, sure, why not? Windows XP, and 2000 are based on NT, just as
Mac OS X is based on BSD Unix. What point did you imagine you were
Okay, sure, they ship with NT 4. No problem.
I haven't made any false statements about Apple. Your tin god has
feet of clay. Accept it.
If you thing a Mac was nothing more than a label applied to a computer
case, then you have a Mac. But the truth of it is you have a PC in
the box, regardless of what it says on the outside.
Not in the least way. All you're doing is sticking yoru fingers in
your ears and yelling "la, la, la, la, la...!!!"
Yes, PCs have evolved throughout their history.
Because Apple dropped their hardware and adopted current PC designs to
replace the Mac.
