Over on MicrosoftWatch there is an interesting post about the Apple WWDC (Dev Conference) and how this year it appears to be focusing a lot on Windows developers and IT people.

Aside from its core Mac developer community, Apple has two other audiences in mind: developers of other operating systems, such as Linux and Windows, and IT professionals.
The interest in non-Mac developers, particularly Windows, stems from Apple's success with its Leopard Tech Talks, said Ron Okamoto, the company's vice president of worldwide developer relations.
"One-third of attendees are new to the Mac," he said.
Have Apple finally realised that developers are actually useful? Will they stop releasing products that kill products written by small indie developers? Is it just all about Sales. I suspect the latter, but isn't it the case with all companies? Isn't 'developers, developers, developers' all about Sales as well?
