And in a nutshell, that is why Apple is still around today. Intelligent 
choice, I would say.

I am as much a QuickTime evangelist as probably anybody, but Jobs pulled 
that company back from the dead. Amelio wouldn't have known "what Apple 
was all about" if it jumped up and bit his head off. Wasn't he the 
"computers should be beige guy"? I honestly haven't heard many lament 
his departure.

I write this on my powerbook, with a bank of G4 towers rendering 
interactive QuickTime behind me - what exactly did we lose with Amelio? 
OH... hypercard - never used it. Wasn't it like an electronic Rolodex or 
something?  ;)

I do like this Revolution thing though...
