Allchin's Buying a Mac in Context

Allchin's 'Buy a Mac' E-Mail Exposed "Jim Allchin's "I would buy a Mac" statement now has ontext. The e-mail is publicly available."

Allchin says: "I am not sure how the company lost sight of what matters to our customers (both business and home) the most, but in my view we lost our way. I think our teams lost sight of what bug-free means, what resilience means, what full scenarios mean, what security means, what performance means, how important current applications are, and really understanding what the most important problems are customers face are. I see lots of random features and some great vision, but that doesn't translate into great products.

I would buy a Mac today if I was not working at Microsoft."
