BusinessWeek: Apple’s Mac OS edge is a very real threat to Microsoft

208D76E6-23BC-409B-A5B2-8EF339450906.jpgThe 20-year death grip that Microsoft has held on the core of computing is finally weakening—pried loose with just two fingers. With one finger you press ‘Control’ and with the other you press ‘right arrow.’ Instantly you switch from a Macintosh operating system (OS) to a Microsoft Windows OS. Then, with another two-finger press, you switch back again. So as you edit family pictures, you might use Mac’s iPhoto. And when you want to access your corporate e-mail, you can switch back instantly to Microsoft Exchange,” Gary Morgenthaler reports for BusinessWeek.

“This easy toggling on an Apple computer, enabled by a feature called Spaces, was but an interesting side note to last fall’s upgrade of the Mac OS,” Morgenthaler reports.
