On Apple's Boot Camp

by Linda Sharps on April 5, 2006

In response to some questions about Apple's freshly announced Boot Camp, a quote from Omni's CEO Ken Case:

In general, I think we'll see Microsoft selling more copies of Windows to Mac users (like the [copy] I'm just about to buy), and Apple selling more Macintoshes to Windows users:  I know it will be a lot easier for many people to buy Macs now that they're not an either/or proposition, which naturally means a larger market for our software.

Is it financially feasible to continue to write apps for Mac OS X, when equivalent apps may exist on Windows XP?  Of course!  We simply have to make sure that our applications provide the best possible experience on all platforms (not just on Mac OS X)—which, I hope, is exactly what we're already doing.
