Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

confidence logic is flawed

The logic in this whole article makes no sense to me.

Apple positions itself as a specialty product and targets those who have more expendable income.

What does that tell you about the confidence Apple has in its own customers...?

Apple's customers (that have this extra expendable income) have the choice between buying expensive and inexpensive hardware and software. They choose Apple products because they feel they are a better value. They are more expensive, but they work better. (Since my family has switched to Macs I no longer have to deal with endless phone calls to fix their broken/unstable Windows computers.)

I would never switch to Psystar simply because it is cheaper, this makes no sense. Psystar does not offer the quality support that Apple does, nor the quality hardward. I choose Apple and it IS worth the price.

What does that tell you about the confidence Apple has in...its products?

The fact that Apple chooses to charge it's customers more for their products proves that they must be confident in their products.

Microsoft must also feel confident in Windows, since they charge so much for it.
