Who is buried in Apple's tomb?

Apparently not Grant....

After all the free computers that have been given to schools, how would this ever happen...

U.S. Grant Web Site Doesn't Work With Macs
Associated Press
Mon Feb 13, 6:21 PM ET


A government Web site that aims to serve as a one-stop shopping point for scholars and others in search of federal grants is creating headaches for users of Macintosh computers.
The site's electronic forms for would-be applicants aren't Mac-compatible. "Frustration kind of goes through the roof," said Mark Tumeo, vice provost for research and dean of the college of graduate studies at Cleveland State University.
He said about 30 percent of the systems used by his university's scientists and others are Macintosh computers. Those with Macs are having to seek out Windows-based PCs in order to fill out the applications. Tumeo estimated several hundred grant applications are affected by the glitch, which was first reported by The Washington Post.
The idea behind the new government Web site, Grants.gov, is to streamline the process of applying for grants by reducing paper applications and replacing them with electronic ones. It also serves as a resource point for the 26 federal grant-making agencies that award over $400 billion in grants each year.
Calls to Grants.gov and the Health and Human Services Department, a managing partner for the program, were not immediately returned Monday.
The Post said HHS helped choose a small Canadian firm called PureEdge Solutions to create the electronic forms, which only work with Microsoft's Windows operating system. PureEdge is said to be working on a fix.

Seems like Darwinism in action to me....if you examined the options and chose Apple, are you really a candidate for furthering your education...

To be honest, I know quite a bit about that project, as it is being run by one of my former employers. It wasn't a lowest bid, but best value contract.

The software was supposed to have supported macs by now, but the canadian middleware company was bought out by IBM witch stalled some things.

I have actually seen code that checked for exploder and failed regardless of real performance. Also it would make more sense to conform to a STANDARD not a OEM build version
