OSNews has the link to BusinesWeek’s article, headlined A “Perfect Marriage” for Microsoft?, subtitled, “Redmond’s Tim McDonough says Mac lovers have no need to fret over the giant’s purchase of the cross-platform franchise from Connectix”
OTOH, this Yahoo! story claims the purchase is all about virtualization, perhaps something like the VMWare product. I’ve seen the quote the Microsoft’s server base is still 35% Windows NT 4.0, so if they can use this product to pull along those clients, that has clear advantages.
Investmesnts in the Apple market did not make sense to me.
