I remain concerned that there needs to be more great Apple software to help the platform along. But I don’t think that Microsoft’s withdrawal from that market will prove fatal for Apple. Steve and company are quite capable of filling any gaps Microsoft’s departure would leave.
I’d like to be concerned that someday I’ll have an Apple Macintosh for which the only interesting software comes from Apple. But when I think about it, I also have to wonder whether this is terribly different than Microsoft and a Windows machine.
The third-party software business isn’t nearly what it used to be.
