Apple vs Microsoft

When Steve Jobs died, the creative spirit that drove Apple died with him. Bill Gate’s reaction on Steve Job’s death was never really documented but yet there was always a hope that somehow the space that was created by one Jobs would be filled by someone with a vision. That never happened and Apple has had a free ride on what Jobs had already managed to accomplish. Bill Gates on the other hand seemed quite satisfied with Microsoft and its standing. It seems that Microsoft’s position as the layman’s computer has been generated by the surplus supply of Microsoft machines and the easy availability of them globally. Apple’s scarcity and its higher price have placed it as a luxury item- except with maybe the iPhone which became every Auntie’s dream phone (and there are a lot of Aunties).

Have your say- are you a Windows person or an Apple person? What is more convenient and why?
