Apple iMac Spotted Running Windows XP in Austin, Texas Production Line



/ 3 years ago

Microsoft products running on Apple hardware might not have been seen as a big thing, but given the ‘flavour’ added by Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, towards Microsoft during Apple’s WWDC, things are looking a bit awkward. Last Thursday, Cook apparently tweeted a photo of himself touring Apple’s Austin, Texas production line where the Apple Mac Pro is manufactured. This might not be such a big announcement if it wasn’t for something seen in the background of the tweeted photo.

Looking closely on the iMac in the background, it is clearly noticeable that the Apple hardware is running on Windows operating system. Whether it is Windows XP or 7, one guess is as good as the other. However, given the style of the bottom bar, most best are on Windows XP, which is funny since the OS has been discontinued by Microsoft some time ago. Cook looks to have not even seen the ‘issue’ here, but tweets and retweets have been issued, having people buzzing about the Microsoft operating system present in Apple’s production line.

As far as the application running on the Microsoft operating system, reports are that the operating system was used in order to run electronic design automation software (EDA), or something similar in the embedded analysis program software range. As for Apple’s PR, things are not looking so great, since the shot could have been taken from a different angle or at least the ‘issue’ could have been easily spotted before the image was tweeted.

The irony in all this is found in Cook’s speech during WWDC, having the chief executive mocking Microsoft’s poor adoption of Windows 8. Given the tweeted image, Apple might consider adopting Microsoft’s latest operating system themselves, given they are running on a 13 years old operating system with no further security support available.
