Cray uses MacIntosh to design the Cray.
You expect MS to dictate to a service bureau?
And then people complain about Microsoft trying to "control the world".

Although IBM is very mum, it is known that M$ uses a service bureau for some

mistaken) now work for that service bureau.

I would trust M$ as far as I can throw all of Bill Gates' money.


        which  way  would you be  throwing Gates  buck$?

You have  to admit they are telling  a guarded truth, as the service bureau
chose the AS400 not M$ products to run M$ bu$ine$$
