At the time I didn't like the Macintosh due it its very limited support for programming (I actually returned one). Today I couldn't do without my macs anymore.
Happy 25th birthday!

The first Mac I worked on had an 8 inch screen. don't know how I did it way back then.
I learned QuarkXpress and used to publish full colour publications using a mac Classic II. ;)
Does anyone know the global market share of macs these days? Is it still under 5 percent?
Weeeell, it depends on how you view the statistics, and we all know about them. I've seen figures ranging from 4% to nearly 8% (which I really don't believe).
