(I can't believe I'm an Apple apologist here)
What I find insanely ironic in this thread is, chances are the majority of those hurling blind hatred at Apple probably have no problem going back to their PCs with Windows and other MS products on it.
Talk about a company that can't innovate and can't compete
and who's been in the patent trolling business longer than Apple. Apple has been innovative and can be again -- there was the move from OS 9 to OS X with the Unix underlyings, the iPod, the iTunes store, etc. There's nothing new or innovative about what MS has put out in years (if ever). People use Windows because it was well established on OEMs long ago when MS basically forced PC makers to put it on there. They've shown that when there's real competition in the marketplace, they can't (See Zune, WinPhone, Surface). The only way to keep people using their products is to bastardize standards so that they're the only things that work and go to a "subscription" model so that software you get from there is even less yours than it was before.
But, you know, Apple sucks because SHUT UP! #LinuxSnob #MSRant
