Well; it does, increasingly, look like a case of the Emperor's new 
clothes; or, put
it another way; why pay such a lot for Apple products when one can buy 
stuff that
does the same for cheaper? As time goes on, and I become more and more 
comfortable
with Linux I must say I wonder who is wearing the clothes and who is 
strutting down
the main street "in the all-together" crowing like a cock on a 
dunghill"; but then that only
really means that I am starting to feel about Apple the way I've always 
felt about
Microsoft. I also, blame Apple and Microsoft for stifling RISC OS, which 
was, once-upon-a-time,
a better OS than either Apple's or Microsoft's.

The main thing that annoys me (pace Richard Stallman) is that when I buy 
an Apple or Microsoft
product I find myself tied up with EULA's; never having been terribly 
fond of bondage . . .  :)
