One of the reasons he touted as a sure sign of Microsoft's death piqued my interest:
"Nearly all the people we fund at Y Combinator use Apple laptops. It was the same in the audience at startup school. All the computer people use Macs now. Windows is for grandmas, like Macs used to be in the 90s."
Without a doubt, Apple is rising. It's something I've discussed with friends, and spent time trying to decipher. At any tech conference I go to, there are tons of people with Macs. Whenever I visit the Google campus, there are macs all over the place.
What does this mean? Why are people moving to Apple, rather than installing Linux on their laptops with cheaper commodity hardware? There are a myriad of small reasons that I can come up with, but there is no denying the trend. Or fad. I'm not sure which it is.
