Apple Wants ... You! A WWDC 2007 Preview for Windows Developers

Me, in SuperSite for Windows:
At its upcoming World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple is expected to finally divulge the full feature set for Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard." But Apple has an additional and unexpected surprise for this year's show. For the first time ever, Apple is specifically targeting Windows developers who are interested in moving their applications to the Mac.

There is a growing feeling that Apple's strategy is paying off. The company has millions of eager customers, and it seems like many Mac users, like iPod customers, have little compunction about upgrading to the latest and greatest hardware every time Apple ships an upgrade. I'm a numbers guy, but I can't help but shake the feeling that Apple is on to something. And while I like to see hard cold facts, my conversation with Apple revealed a subtle change that I think is quite important and does, in fact, point to an increasing presence on Apple's part in the wider PC market.

Here's what I found out.
Come on, the graphic's classic, admit it. :)
