I sat Tomaaaaatoes and you say Tomaytoes; let's call the whole thing off 
. . .  :)

Of course Macintosh has its shortcomings; and frankly since they moved 
to Intel Processors, Steve Jobs
started boasting, and they stopped thinking differently and started 
chasing the metro-sexuals the shortcomings
have increased to the extent that one really wonders whether the 
financial overhead of investing in Apple
products is really justified.

I have been a fairly hard-core Apple champion; but when I saw them 
chasing the almighty dollar to the extent
that they began to scrimp on what they had previously been good at I 
have begun going 'off' them.

This does not, howver, make me more 'on' re Windows.

I am devoting quite a bit of my time to becoming more familiar with 
Linux, coupled
with a realisation that as Linux is so customisable if something goes 
wrong it is
probably my fault rather that the nebulous "them".
