I liked your editorial on why Macworld is not so exciting for "the rest of us" any more. One thing you may have missed: Macworld this year was just not very exciting for anyone, RAM Doubler aside. The reasons?

  • Developers are expending effort porting to PowerPC. It doesn't make sense to me that this should be a big effort, but maybe a lot of code out there is skankier than one might think. Anyway, lots of folks were showing their products running fast on PowerPC machines. In a way, this is exciting, but it's also boring. I found it boring. I'd rather see new ideas running slow. (Not that anyone should reconsider gifting me a PowerPC machine.)

  • Developers are holding back feature upgrade releases until March when the PowerPC Macs are rumored to ship. Developers can better take advantage of the Apple marketing hype juggernaut if their new features are demonstrated by Michael Spindler live on stage in front of 10,000 people and on worldwide satellite TV.
