What are we disagreeing about, Troy?

My remarks were made in support of my challenge to Loren Rivers' remark:

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 
market.

If we are to disagree, let's focus our discussion on that.
