Business & Technology | Apple takes Safari to Windows | Seattle Times Newspaper

Ahh -- instant market share; bundle Windows Safari together with iTunes (with the latter also included by default with QuickTime, at least last time I installed QuickTime -- which was a long time ago, since QuickTime has long since been displaced by Flash video), and presto: Apple can claim big download numbers, even if nobody uses Windows Safari.  Maybe they should bundle a spreadsheet program as well...

Apple will distribute Safari with the other Windows software the company produces: its iTunes jukebox, which has been downloaded some 500 million times, Jobs said.

"We dream big," Jobs said. "We'd love for Safari's market share to grow substantially ... We're going to go try," he said.
