Interestingly enough, as a Window and Linux user, I had never even
heard of Hyper-Card when I found MetaCard, then Rev and finally
LiveCode... I was just looking for a decent development tool for those
two platforms only. Mac's or anything to do with Apple never even
crossed my mind. (Seldom does still, although I do have a Mac-Mini
that I largely ignore.)

In the final analysis what Apple produced in an attempt to market cheap computers, was... well... cheap computers! Good riddance I say! I'll pay the extra for premium parts.
