The beginning of the end..?

Bad news for Microsoft.Yes, I know I’m an Apple fanboy, and yes I know it’s hard not to gloat, and yes I also know that Microsoft will always be around in some form or another, but are we really beginning to see the behemoth stumble?Vista AND XP below expectations, sales slumping by 24%, a 4.6% drop in the share price, and sales of ONLY $4 billion (I guess there’s still a few fools out there still buying Microsoft). However, this also happended today:Apple releases Common Criteria Tools for Mac OS X 10.5 LeopardA set of tools that map out the security features of Leopard, so that enterprise customers can buy in confidence.Is this it, is Apple really serious in going for the Microsoft juggler(jugular)? Seems so.While Microsoft is juggling, having several dozen balls in the air at the same time, Apple is trying to pull the rug out from under them.And let me just remind all the Apple-faithful, it’s 2 YEARS, at the earliest, until Microsoft releases Windows 7, the OS that’s going to solve all your problems (apparently).(again)(even though Vista was supposed to do that)(and XP)(and Me)(and 2000)(and 98)(and 95) – you get the picture.If Apple can keep up selling 2.6 million Mac’s a quarter, with 50% going to new users, that’s an extra 10.4 million Windows converted, minimum.Are there going to be any Windows users left to buy Windows 7?
