“This whole brouhaha over the Veritest benchmarking stinks mightily. I smell a rat… in fact I smell a lot of rats. I smell the stink of hypocrisy from some corners but in the end all is overpowerd by The Smell of Fear,” writes Joe Carson over at Applelust.com.
“Why? Because deep down underneath the Wintel Hegemony’s longstanding arrogance dwells the gnawing fear that eventually the public might wake up and realize that the Wintel Hegemony has built everything on stolen, copied and second rate technology. They have kept this under control with paid stooges in the media, well placed FUD plants to divert the public away from the sleight of hand tricks that have been played on them. They have spent a lot of PR time loudly proclaiming “innovations” that they conveniently forget to mention are almost invariably something they copied from Apple, often years later and usually copied badly,” Carson writes.
“The problem is that they are aware that Apple technology has always had the potential of marginalizing them if the Masses of the Great Unwashed ever found them out. The problem came home to roost when Apple announced the PowerMac G5. The PowerMac G5 delivers everything Wintel has only promised,” writes Carson.
“I detect the rank stench of The Smell of Fear rising from the piles of verbal manure being tossed around by the Wintel fanatics. The only reason that they have reacted so violently to the Veritest SPEC2000 benchmarks is that they know full well that they are real, and that reality spells the eventual end of Wintel,” writes Carson.
