Head of Windows Development wants a Mac

Seems that Jim Allchin, the head of Windows Platform Development at Microsoft, sent an e-mail to Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer back in 2004 that said
"I would buy a Mac if I didn't work for Microsoft".

Windows development chief: 'I would buy a Mac if I didn't work for Microsoft'



Pretty funny when the top windows developer doesn't want it.

I have a motorcycle addiction... and I get my fix elsewhere.

Re: Head of Windows Development wants a Mac

Never put anything in an e-mail you don't want to see on the front page of the newspaper...

He may or may not have been using hyperbole as a frustrated employee trying to get the message through...but the whole geek world is going hyperbolic, and will repeat this as gospel now.

I can hear the podcasts already.
