Editorial Last week, Apple again repeated its claim that the iPhone and iPod Touch are capable of filling the netbook niche. They also claimed that netbooks can barely be called personal computers. Both of these statements are complete and utter nonsense, but instead of writing down some high-level definition of what a netbook is, I decided to simply write down all the things I do with my netbook that the iPhone/iPod Touch cannot do to make the difference between the two that much more tangible.

You do realize that you can put basically any os on a modern Mac with an Intel processor, right? Windows, Linux, *BSD... you can run them all. And in the case of the older ppc Macs, you can run any os that has ppc support (Linux, *BSD, etc). No Windows, but hey if you're talking about freedom you probably wouldn't want Windows on your machine anyway, right?
