Plenty of linux newbies think apple’s alright for putting out a computer that don’t run windows. It may add some choice to the market, but in all honesty, apple is much worse than microsoft. You can’t install thier OS on non apple hardware without cracking it, they lock out 3rd party app developers on their ipods, pads and phones, release mandatory updates that break compatibility with free operating systems, and their walled garden stance threatens everything the internet stands for. You take it for granted that you’re not allowed to install custom OSes on their portable devices (without jailbreaking), but what if they did that to apple desktop computers? What OEMs started copying them?
