There is nothing new under the sun

I recently came across some materials that were mailed by Apple to me at an early employer.  I was particularly intrigued by the cover letter extolling the virtues of Macintosh/MS-DOS Compatibility.  The time frame had to be in the early 1990′s.  The products they were referencing were SoftPC and the Orange Micro Orange386.  The closing sentence “Thank you for taking the time to learn why your next MS-DOS computer should be a Macintosh.”  Is this some strange future prediction?  How interesting that today with the Mac product line transitioned over to the Intel processors, more and more people are making the Mac platform their Windows computer of choice.  Welcome to the 90′s again.

As a side note, I found it particularly funny that when doing some research the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article came up for Orange 386.
