Apple Using his blue box, Steve Wozniak once called the Vatican (for free), and, imitating Henry Kissinger's voice, asked if he could speak with the pope. The pope turned out to be asleep. Wozniak pulled these pranks together with Steve Jobs, with whom he'd found Apple computer not long after. Oh, how the times have changed. How can a company with its roots in phreaking, pranks, and home-made computing end up the way it is today?

You are totally right. I feel the same way. Let's start a new cult and use Plan9 (window manager: 9WM) as our new OS. I guarantuee you never have seen anything wackier than 9wm and Plan9.
