Legal As we say in Dutch, de kogel is door de kerk: Think Secret will cease all activities after reaching a settlement with Apple in a lawsuit Apple had filed against the website. In exchange for closing down Think Secret, Nick DePlume, its owner, will not have to reveal its sources to Apple. The press release on the Think Secret website reads: "Apple and Think Secret have settled their lawsuit, reaching an agreement that results in a positive solution for both sides. As part of the confidential settlement, no sources were revealed and Think Secret will no longer be published." My take: I have respect for the way DePlume protected his sources; very commendable. I have, however, little respect for Apple in this case (I have written, rather controversially, about it before), and it just scares the living daylights out of me that a company can exert this much power over independent websites.

I wish sun would be the monopolist rather.
Sun solaris is true Unix, super extremely scalable and super fast and many time more stable than windows/linux. OSX is very good but not as fast as solaris, and its not meant to be a server OS.

But....the story goes that windows got it.

If you don't want 2000$ for a 100Mhz, then thank AMD and keep buying their products, they are the reason for this low price and if you want to thank another player than linux distros that made the value you have to pay 0$. Anyway despite all of this I still like apple products and wish I can afford to buy them, because they are so well integrated (hardware/software) leading to best laptop experience in the world.
