Apple Apple doesn't have a particularly healthy relationship with the press; it has sued websites for publishing information it didn't like, and has tried to keep information under wraps that a journalist tried to uncover via the Freedom of Information Act. Now, however, it has tried to prevent The Times from publishing an article about Steve Jobs.

A large part of Apple costumers buys there products because they have enough of Microsoft's shady business practices. They sometimes, quite literarlly see Apple as something resembling the 'light side'.
Therefore news that can break this illusion can be very welcome.
Not to mention, not too much here on OSNews, is fun to read the resulting comments from Apple-fanboys of such articles.

For me, I don't care about practices; I just want a product that works out of the box with minimum fuss and bother - Apple provides me with that product. If Microsoft could provide a superior experience, I'd use that. if Novell could do the same thing, I'd move to them.

I have no loyalty - I go with what ever does the job. Maybe instead of an anti-Apple or anti-Microsoft vendetta, you used some of that pent up frustration to educate end users of alternatives so that their software repotoi extends beyond the big 4-5 software companies.
