    Well, let uncle tell you all a story....

    Long long time ago in the days of DOS there was no windows. Then Xerox had a strong R&D team, employed a bunch of geeks to envision what the future office will be like. (Xerox was into office automation - photocopy machines etc). Basically, they set up a very conducive environment for them to R&D... so they came up with cool stuff like windows and also WISIWIG (what you see is what you get). And so in those ancient days, the mouse, windows, wsiwig fonts, drag & drop was born....

    But when the geeks presented to Xerox Mgt, it did not generate an interest. They cannot see the future! So they just put these inventions aside as a showcase and did not develop them further. But they opened them up for visitors.

    So Steve Jobs visited Xerox to check it out. ANd the mgt even asked its scientist to show Steve all the stuff. And the young man saw the potential. That's when the Mac was envisioned. But all they were good at Apple then was OS. No compelling software. And so he approached Bill Gates to work on stuff like Word and Paint for Mac. Why? Coz their common rival then was IBM (remember IBM PC ATs?)

    Unbeknownst to Steve, when Bill saw the Mac OS and all the ideas it was supposed to do, he decided that MS should have it too. And Bill was co-developing on Mac! Anyways, when Mac was launched to the world, Bill was also on the panel of guest. Hehehee!

    And of course by then Xerox went "Douh!!!!"


    Then when Bill came up with Win95, Steve went "Douh!!!"


    Ok, lah shortened version for all of you....
    Mac is good. So is XP. Unless you clog both...

    Apple depends on Unix for security and filesystem. It also depends on OpenGL for Graphics, and Xerox for the mouse.

    Tiger sucks. So fast 10.2++ liao. I get updates more frequently than Windows.

    Have you guys tried copying large file from server1 to server2??

    Safari is a joke of a browser. Luckily there's firefox to save the day.

    Apple paid a undisclose amount of money to Xerox to settle the lawsuit from them to claim that window(the GUI) was invented by Apple themselves.
