    Then why is M$ alienating at least 80% of there user base with Metro the very people who should be buying there mobile market.

    Apple knows not to mess with there PC people they are the people that will promote there mobile stuff.

    What are you talking about, Apple isn't looking after their Mac people, it's hardly got any, and most of them are pist with Apple for not looking after them. It's only worried about the mobile market, you should check things out a bit.

    Ahh.. fanciful figures. I like that game!... But you don't understand.. 69% of the Apple base feel they're being screwed by Windows usurping their touchscreen empire.

    Are you it's 69% ? LOL.

    Bill,

    I still haven't figured your posting method out - is it that you pick a letter at random from a previous post, then jumble up a lot of words/unconnected sentences on pieces of paper, pull them out blindfold, assemble them with that letter in special place - then post up the result?

    I think David Bowie experimented with writing songs a bit like that at one stage.

    Who's David Bowie.

    I can understand your confusion, it's the same confusion you're having with Windows 8, it happens to 90% of the population I believe.

    I guess this is an example of Apple leaving there PC lines to rot.

    I would think more than 90% would find your posts not confusing, but unintelligible/irrelevant.

    They can be funny, though.
