Microsoft After the more-or-less positively received "You find it, you keep it" television advertisements, it seems as if Microsoft is quickly falling back to its previous mistakes of relying on easily countered FUD-like tactics. We already discussed the blog post regarding Linux on netbooks, which was easily countered on virtually every point made. However, it gets even worse: Microsoft has ordered a study detailing what the company calls the hidden "Apple tax" that you are supposedly paying if you go Apple. Now, I'm the first to state that Apple simply doesn't provide the optimal pricing for everyone, but this Microsoft sponsored study is so completely and utterly ridiculous it makes me wonder just who on earth would look at it and go "Yeah, this looks pretty convincing!"

Maybe your laptop is not really broke physically but you have to spend a lot of time before you can use it comfortably again. That's exactly why I buy Apples. I know I pay too much, but what the heck? I just like the comfort. Windows just annoys me, and Linux does the same. I am a professional software developer, I know how to fix *any* problem on any Windows or Linux box. However personally I always run macs... why? Because I just don't want to spend *any* time at all doing things I don't want to do on my computer. Macs focus on comfort, they are meant for lazy people, I am lazy.
