I received an email from someone yesterday highlighting a recent security patch from Apple. I wasn’t sure why. I regularly receive updates for my Mac. Not sure why this one was anything special.
I’ve run Macs for years now. Without any of the tedious nonsense that I have endured with Wintel boxes. You know the list: driver conflicts, viruses, spyware, adware, crashes.
My computing experience is simply better on a Mac. And so, I would rather use a Mac than a Wintel PC. Big deal. I know lots of people who get by running a Wintel PC.
My concern with Microsoft has been, and continues to be, its dismal performance for shareholders. This post sums up the frustration that I have with the company as a whole. The chart below shows the performance of Microsoft’s stock against Apple’s stock over the past five years. And yes, the Apple line shows about a 600% price increase. MSFT is so close to zero that it ain’t worth tracking.
Is it worth holding MSFT?
