Apple I started out as a Mac user in about 1985 in a world which will be totally unfamiliar to almost all readers of OSNews. You wrote out your stuff by longhand, and a secretary typed it on a word processor. If you were lucky and able to manage it, you could dictate it. But you did not dictate into a dictating machine, because these were big heavy and expensive. You dictated it directly to someone who could 'take shorthand'. If you had a PC, it ran DOS. You looked for your files, and moved them around, started applications, one at a time, from the command line, and the command line was not pretty, it was green on black.

Just wanted to say that this is a wonderful personal reflection on the state of things. It is so as it is written. The pattern is there! Nobody can deny it. Apple is playing with peoples minds through adverts and it is sad to see that some really follow.

Again, great, great commentary!
