Quote of the Week -- As a followup to Charles Wheeler's article in the last issue about converting a Mac site to DOS-based software, a friend passed this on. "After spending nearly a quarter million dollars on DOS-based equipment to replace the Macs in our company, our president was heard to ask, 'How can we make them more Mac-like?'"

A close second is Stewart Alsop's comment in the 29-Nov-93 issue of InfoWorld that talks about how PDAs differ from computers. "Many people knowingly wink and say that neither Newton nor Zoomer is the answer. Microsoft and Compaq will get WinPad out and you'll be able to run your Windows software on your PDA, they say. I consign these people to the category of unknowing and disinterested nincompoops. ... In fact, these are the same people who used to make the vacuous statements about running a mainframe on a desktop."
