Dear Mr. Hall @ research.att.com
I don't see why you have to make a personal attack against me.[...]
I thoroughly apologize for my unfortunate choice of words which you
took in a way I did not intend. Both occurrences of "you" above should be
replaced with "one". I do not know you at all and certainly have no knowledge
of what you do or how much $$$ you make.
The intent of what I said was to point out that according to Apple
one (at least Apple, and there are other examples) cannot make money
selling even a high-quality environment like MCL that is targeted at
only one hardware platform. The remark about fish on the screen was a
reference to a highly popular screensaver program with which I have no
way of knowing if you are connected (and did not intend to imply you are).
Again, in no way was this intended as a personal attack and I apologize
if my wording was unfortunate in giving you (or anyone else) this impression.
