Claim MacC - Mac clone sales> Macs by 7/97

Category: Science & Technology:Computer Industry JUDGED at 0
Owner:0, Bank
Judge:306, SMWinnie
due date:1997/07/01

The Claim

This claim will be judged YES if by 1 July 1997 the total sales volume (by number of computers sold) of Macintosh clones exceeds that of Apple-made Macs in any continuous, three month period. For purposes of this claim, a Mac clone is any computer primarily running any varient of MacOS that is manufactured or sold by a company other than Apple. (i.e., Radius clones, which are PowerMac 8100s with a lot of added video stuff and a new case, count as clones. Pcs running the ARDI emulator, MAE equipped UNIX boxes, etc, don't. Pippin or Pippin-like game consoles are also excluded.)

Judge's Statement

I will judge based on the intent of this claim, if I perceive such intent to be obvious. If such intent is ambiguous I will judge on the basis of the precise wording. If both are ambiguous, I will look for a solution which follows IF/FX precedent insofar as such precedent is apparent to me and applicable to the claim. I will seek the guidance of the claim's owner/author in interpreting the claim. It's his or her question - s/he ought to get the answer sought. If I believe this claim to have met a YES or NO condition, and if I believe judgement will be controversial, I will post a prospective judgement to fx-discuss and forestall entering the judgement for a comment period to be announced in the post.
