Microsoft Watch has posted a number of e-mails from readers who say they are considering switching to Mac OS X due to the delay of Longhorn, Microsoft’s next major version of Windows. “Apple is already many years ahead in several areas compared to Win XP (Quartz Extreme),” writes PHP programmer Adam Chaney. “And with Panther less then 10 days from release. It will make Apple look even better because they can ship an OS with real reasons to upgrade while MS cannot for three years. Three years is an eternity in computer time. By the time MS gets its act together, people may have gotten tired of banging on MS’s door and have gone across the street to the open door with the big sign that reads ‘Come on in!, No Worms in this Apple.'”
