Just when you thought you might know where Apple was heading, Bill Gates decides to drop in on the company. According to the New York Times, Gates spent an hour at Apple headquarters two weeks ago in a meeting with chief executive Gil Amelio, chief technology officer Ellen Hancock and the newly returned Steve Jobs, who in the past has not been noted for his kind words about Microsoft or its technology. One item on the agenda was the possibility of Apple licensing NT. This was an option which considered in the aftermath of Hancock canning the Apple Copland development project, but it is unclear where fits in to the company?s long term strategy following its $400 million acquisition of Next over Christmas. The NY Times also reports that despite repeated claims of support for Motorola and the Power PC platform, Apple bosses are looking into producing a separate line of machines running Intel processors.Apple is declining to comment on the rumours.
