An outcry erupted from the Mac community today as Microsoft announced that it was discontinuing MSN for the Mac.
Disappointed Mac users across the globe vented their frustrations in blog posts, forum messages and emails.
“Huh?” said Macworld editor Jason Snell. “I thought they killed that back when they killed IE. Yeah, I’m sure of it.
“No? Huh. Well… uh…
“OK. I mean, what do you want me to say?”
Snell’s fury was equally matched by that of TidBITS’ Adam Engst.
“They canceled what now?” Engst, the author of one of the earliest books on how to get on the Internet, asked. “When did they make a Mac version of that?
“And why are you calling me? And how did you get this number?
“And, hey, wait… they killed this back in 2005. What the…?”
The same level of furious rage could also be felt emanating from Apple, although it met the announcement with stony silence.
Except for CEO Steve Jobs who, when reached for comment, launched into a furious expletive-ridden screed.
Although that may have been over how we got his home number.
