Andreas Pfeiffer on the forthcoming timing showdown between Apple machines booting in OSX only (Jan 2003) and Quark’s forthcoming X-only release of XPress (probably Q2 2003). He notes that businesses would prefer to migrate OS and application environments at different times, but they may well be forced to change both at the same time. The article is pretty much verbatim what he argued in his recent eWeek report, albeit more management summary. Conclusion: what people really want is an XPress 4.x that runs both in OS9 and OSX — so they have control over their upgrade migration.
