Apple?s chief executive Gil Amelio is still keeping quiet about the company's Mac OS strategy but has pre-announced machines the company will introduce in 1997.
While Amelio still refuses to comment on persistent reports that Apple will buy operating systems from Be or Next Computer, in an interview with the 'San Francisco Chronicle' he revealed that it is set to introduce a laptop model and a simpler desktop machine.
He also conceded that it will be difficult for Apple to move completely away from its System 7 operating system, which it has said it will develop separately from the future Mac OS. That is because of the large installed base as well as pressure from its developers.
Internet technology, he hinted, will be a big focus for Apple in coming years but Amelio does not expect to make a significant number of people redundant in the year to come.
