I meant that if you don't like a download-only concept (which this isn't - I KNOW!), this is a fail because it pushes towards that end. Anyway, it's no secret that I can't stand Apple. That's practically public knowledge. It has nothing to do with their success either, but that's a different argument.
It's only what you have been doing best in this entire thread.
Whahahahaha! Really? REALLY? From YOU?
Without a doubt MS did this last time around. Who said they didn't? MS also was first to bring a tablet to market.. And how did that work out? The difference here is that Apple is planning to push the DD upgrade vs the disc model.
And they're still offering discs. So we'll see how it works out.
And considering the history of success with the app market and iTunes (both category leading DD storefronts). I'd bet they will be pretty successful pushing their next OS thru DD.. Much more successful than MS was with Windows.. And that's what makes it noteworthy, not because someone else 'did it first' but because someone else can do it better.
An OS distribution is nothing like an app market or iTunes, so there's not guarantee of success. It might work, it might not.
How do you offer a download "better"? That makes no sense. You either market it or you don't. Microsoft didn't really publicize the download version last time and Apple is now. I'm sure next go-round Microsoft will push the download version. If they sell more downloads does that mean they did it better?
And why not want a backup copy on a USB flash drive or hdd.. That only makes sense. After all who doesnt want access to a backup copy of all their personal software/data in the event of a emergency, failure or outage (ie Sony). I have a backup of every other piece of media and data i own, to include all DD apps and an iso of Windows7.
No silly faces needed to get that point across.
You're missing the point. I found it funny that a bunch of people in the comments were ok with a download if they could burn it to a disc
. Do you not see the irony in that? See, because they want the disc-less download version, but only if they can burn it to a disc....? See what's happening there?
I like you Daekwan. I always think it's funny how convicted you are over discs, or rather lack thereof and it makes for some interesting views.
