    why wouldnt they?

    Because Microsoft and Apple don't exactly like each other.

    Microsoft+Apple=Hate ? Possibly :whistling:


    why wouldnt they?

    :thumbsup: +1

    it's a business and i'm sure Bill Gates owned Apple stock when he was at MS.

    Subbed cos I don't see where this is going......

    Apple know full well they'd lose customers if MS didn't have products on OSX.

    Microsoft wouldn't exactly ignore a market when there is one to be had.

    Both benefit, think of two mafia clans co-operating ala Godfather (but without the murder etc and actually working... lol)

    Because Microsoft and Apple don't exactly like each … Because Microsoft and Apple don't exactly like each other.Microsoft+Apple=Hate ? Possibly :whistling:

    evidence on this ? :?

    or is this like the pretend Simon Cowell hates Louis Walsh news :whistling:


    Microsoft is one of the most successful companies in the world because they think of things like this op.

    M$ selling their products to people using a rival OS - What's so surprising? Office is industry standard regardless of what machine you use. If people want to have Macs, then why not sell your product to them anyway? Money is money.


    [email protected] op's avatar btw... i doubt it's meant to look like that :lol:

    What is the bigger surprise is that mso on the apple "seems" more stable than the windows version lol
