What are we disagreeing about, Troy?

I did't mean for the focus to shift to Amelio vs Jobs, or colored
boxes vs real technological progress.
I don't think Apple management understood the potential of Xtalk
technology any better than Xerox executives understood the potential
of the PARC Center's GUI or SofTech Microsystems executives
understood the potential of the UCSD-p system to capture the PC
If we are to disagree, let's focus our discussion on that.
