Apple & Microsoft

In an interview with Steve Jobs...
The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste, and what that means is - I don't mean that in a small way I mean that in a big way. In the sense that they they don't think of original ideas and they don't bring much culture into their product ehm and you say why is that important - well you know proportionally spaced fonts come from type setting and beautiful books, that's where one gets the idea - if it weren't for the Mac they would never have that in their products and ehm so I guess I am saddened, not by Microsoft's success - I have no problem with their success, they've earned their success for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third rate products.

Today... Apple and Microsoft sign pact to deliver Office software for the Mac for 5 more years...
"It's the best of both worlds," he (Microsoft's Erickson) said. "We get to work with Microsoft's developers and have great partnerships with both the Mac and PC worlds."

What is this? Nazi-Soviet Pact? With OpenOffice and Linux being the victims? (Kidding...)
