'Macintosh crashes were Microsoft's fault', says Apple co-founder Wozniak
Sydney, May 14 (ANI): Tech giant Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak has said that Microsoft was responsible for Macintosh's constant program crashes.
Wozniak, who is in Australia for a seminar on the company's business philosophy and the legacy of Steve Jobs, said he had discovered a flaw in Internet Explorer in 1996 that caused programs in the Macintosh to crash.
"Everyone who ran Internet Explorer you would have several crashes, every day," News.com.au quoted Wozniak, as saying.
"Move something into folder, it would crash, and you'd have to restart. Type something, crash restart," he said.
"Everyone thought it was the OS (Apple's operating system). I guess it kind of was because it was allowing all this to happen. But in reality it was Microsoft Internet Explorer," he added.
Wozniak said he found that people who ran Netscape or another program from Germany called ICAP, never experienced crashes.
He, however, acknowledged the fact that once a computer got a bad name, it stayed bad forever. (ANI)
