Frozen Mac

Recent Mac commercials (which I always love) share Windows guy freezing 2150 many years into the future. It’s making fun of the Jerry Seinfeld/Bill Gates commercial where Bill hints at next version of Windows. That being said, all this poking and competition has got me thinking on where it will be in 2040 (2150 being too far away).

What are pretty much guarantees:
Dropping prices in hardware
Culture changes at Apple and Windows
Opensource movement to continue to grow
Steve Jobs will die. (sorry folks, everyone does)

Rating past, present, future
Without using any formal metric (market share, revenue generated, etc), I would like to post my prediction of how the market will evolve based on a Wine Spectator point scale. Have made a few notes on why each of the trends.

What do you think?

  1. I’m going to keep an eye on these predictions.

    I agree that Linux will grow, but it needs to accepted by all hardware/software before that can happen. I.e., I’d love to try it, but it needs to work from the get go (no downloading drivers for things that don’t work etc).

    I didn’t realise the stability of one company (Apple, Inc) was held solely on one person (Steve Jobs). Surely there are people coming up with ideas for him and making decisions.

    Though, I guess Windows went pretty downhill when Bill Gates stood back. 7 is a good number. I hope Windows does recover a little for competition. Otherwise, I’ll just have to keep begging people to Get a Mac.

    You know Derek, I am a huge mac fanboy myself. But after witnessing what companies can do after being considered “not as cool”. Kinda have a feeling MS is going to come back with a vengeance.
