The Myth of the Muttering Madman is a project in self-realization.

Ermm, excuse me Steve, where's Firefox?

I finally watched the WWDC 2007 keynote (though not via that link) - I ended up having to download it via BitTorrent. I still can't connect to watch that stream. Anyway, I too noticed what surely must have been a discrepancy on the part of Steve Jobs while he was presenting the Safari on Windows story.

I'm sure it's obvious to most people that this world view of Safari/IE isn't going to happen and I'm not sure that's what Apple was trying to show anyway. If we give them the benefit of the doubt here though, the least they've been is careless. I think it's fairly self evident that there will always be free software and choice, or if not free software then at least open source :) If I don't like the way someone does something I will go and do a better job. That's why I did a Computer Science degree. That's why I learn everything I can get my hands on about technology, and particularly the craft of creating good software. It's a little hard to believe Apple could be so naive as to exclude the current cream of the crop (FireFox) from the picture.

Apple knows the art of presenting information, they do it better than most. I just find the potential conclusions begging to be drawn here a little disturbing*.

*Though perhaps not very surprising.
