At Best Buy's today their were 3 Mac's. 2 Performas and 1 7600. Someone was
in front of each one. No one was in front of the 15 or so varioius
Pentiums. It was truely a Kodak moment.

The other point is "F" corporate Amerika. This move will guarentee Apple
keeping it's core audience and making life hell for the Windoze folks
trying to compete with the "quality" of software.
