A Tour of Microsoft's Mac Lab

David Weiss: A Tour of Microsoft's Mac Lab

Thanks to Rex Hammock, of Rexblog fame, Nashville's best and most prolific blogger, for this reference and post.

The link is a tour of Microsoft's Mac Lab from David Weiss. It's a most interesting and reassuring web tour. Reassuring because one can see the reverence that our oft-times nemesis, the windows geeks, have for our beloved Mac. Or at least this section of the company--(albeit miniscule section of Microsoft land).

A nice tour down memory lane plus a whole bunch of Mac Mini's --and the feeling that there are some really solid solid Mac folks up there in Washington State.

Ahhh...just think back to the days when there was no such thing as an IPOD, and it was us against the world......those times were nice weren't they--in a way? Now that Apple (the company) is hot, you kind of relish the complete underdog role we used to enjoy. I'm not really sure I really like having Apple on top of the digital music world to tell you the truth.

Anyway, this link sort of softens my opinion of the Seattle guys a great deal--these folks in the MBU as they call it--the Mac Business Unit at Microsoft.

Thanks Rex (and thanks Julia, whoever you are).
