Which NVidia marketing idiot thought this would be a funny prank to pull out of his/her a$$?
Who the heck cares about a Mac anyway, and who in their right mind markets a flagship product to a dying system?
(Okay Mac lovers, flame the crap out of me now.)
My god this puts a sour taste in the hearts of all the NVidia enthusiasts.
the Mac is not dying any more. it more or less stopped dying the day they released the G3. if you look at how much their market share has grown over the last few years, you’ll see what i mean.
i’ve never owned a Mac, but i really don’t mind if the GF3 is released for that platform before the PC platform. i’m sure there are quite a few NVIDIA enthusiasts among the Mac users, too.
many people care about the Mac, and NVIDIA, in their right mind, markets a flagship product for a platform that is growing, not dying.
of course, they probably do it only for political reasons – the competition isn’t nearly as hard on the Mac platform when it comes to graphics. the decision makes perfect sense, if you think about it.
btw, have you looked at Mac OS X? it’s quite a lot more impressive than Win2k, imho …
