Not sure I'd say the "PC" war (as it relates to Apple) was fought & won by Microsoft. It was won by IBM with Microsoft coming along for the ride. IBM slit its own throat and Microsoft became the dominant OS, language and app vendor for the IBM / clone market. Apple made plenty of mistakes along the way... sealing its fate.

As for today... it seems like everyone thinks its a zero-sum game. As if Google/Android or Microsoft must fail for Apple to succeed. It's not. Apple makes it's products and runs the Apple ecosystem a certain way. If that fits a particular consumer's needs - great. If not, they try an Android device or Microsoft or Blackberry.

Possibly authentic witty blog posts aside... none of these companies are inherently good or bad. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. Microsoft was the top dog and the biggest target for a long time. MS supporters blamed the fed's anti-trust case as well as the millions of viruses / trojans on "being the biggest target". With PC's Microsoft is still almost totally dominant. Apple as a consumer device maker and corporation is now the top dog and makes a nice big target for people. Everyone loves an underdog... prior to the iPod and iPhone Apple was a big underdog.
Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. ~ George Washington
