So the Mac is doomed once Windows/95 is released. Let's see when will that
be: 1996? 1997? ;-)
Last year Apple sold 1,000,000 Power PC's. They are backordered tens of
thousands of units and can't keep up with the demand. The Apple PowerBook
outsells all other laptops compbined. The PowerBook went form 0% marketshare
to 67% in just a couple of years. In the graphics/publishing industry
IBM/Dos/Windows machines are fairly nonexistent. Same with multimedia. Apple
owns these markets. Their marketshare isn't mroe than 50%--it's more than
95%. Go to a service bureau and ask to run out your IBM file. You'll have to
look high and lo to find someone to do it.
Sorry, the Mac shows no sign of rolling over and playing dead. I've been
heard about the demise of the Mac since January 1984.
