    This isn’t news to anyone, I suspect. :) Some time back I argued that Microsoft Word’s interface for entering mathematical formulae sucks huge boulders compared to LyX’s interface for the same.

    Well, my cheeky response was going to be a picture worth a thousand words – AAPL charted against MSFT. But I checked and 1 year rolling AAPL is up 50% over MSFT, 2 year rolling up 400%, and 5 year rolling even more!

    It really is boggling how Microsoft manages to hang onto such a market share. Actually, no it isn’t. They were about to be split up in an antitrust suit when Bush took office and declared that the US gov’t had no interest in pursuing it. Somewhere out there is a statistic of how much Microsoft contributed to his campaign …
