Microsoft And Apple

9 January 2003

Were it not for business interactions that require me to own a computer that runs Windows, I’d be the worst sort of Apple user. You know, one of those who almost makes it a religious experience to talk about their particular Mac and what it does for them.

One compelling reason for the Mac running OS X is the suite of applications that have been developed around personal photo, video and music collections. An iPhoto demonstration simply astounded me. I’ve searched ever since for a way to have similar functionality in Windows. It doesn’t exist.

Apparently, I wasn’t alone in the search. Walter Mossberg’s latest Personal Technology column describes two contenders in the Windows world. He picks Picasa.
