The Macintosh Way by Guy Kawasaki - Free PDF Download

Guy Kawasaki's first book, The Macintosh Way, had quite a few references to ComputerWare in it. He promoted ComputerWare as the perfect venue for doing things the Macintosh Way, and we were all proud to part of the extended Apple family!

The Macintosh Way has been out of print for many years, and Guy recently managed to get all the rights back. He just announced on Alltop's Holykaw that he has graciously allowed his Twitter followers to download a PDF file of this book for free. 

To download the free PDF, you need to follow the instructions on http://freemacway.com/ -- Make sure that set your Twitter account up and follow @GuyKawasaki before trying to start the download, otherwise you will get a strange error that makes no sense, but means, "you aren't following Guy, so there!"  If you are following him, you should see a link to download the book!

Here's a quick screenshot of page 121, which is one of many references to ComputerWare (and Cho's):

ComputerWare Belgium

ComputerWare Belgium is something that has always confused me.  Even back in the day when ComputerWare was running strong, and had a large International Sales department, there was this strange ComputerWare Belgium that used all of our logos, marketing, and name -- and they weren't connected with ComputerWare in any way. Or am I wrong; was there a connection? It's been a long time, and perhaps someone can explain it now!  The strange thing is that ComputerWare Belgium's website is still up and running, and they are still using the same logo!
