History of Windows vs. Apple

I love infographics.

Below is a screenshot of a very large infographic showing the history of Microsoft (and Windows associated products) and Apple (and Mac/iOS associated products) from 1984 until 2011. Click the source link for the full size version.

I'm pretty sure 10/24/1985 wasn't a great idea at post-Jobsie Apple, it took until 3/1/1988 for them to realize this.

9/14/2000 however, was a bit of a set back for Gatesy.

10/23/2001, whoops, Apple back in front.

10/22/2009, Sorry Apple, Win7 > OSX (I un-converted).

I do think it was interesting that they left out June 2006, when Apple hardware just became prettier (and much more expensive) PC hardware...
