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.

A good analogy and a decent opinion piece. I like osx its a great product but i could care less about apples hardware or their business practices in general. I think apple has the opposite problem of microsoft, apple has no confidence in a great product (osx) microsoft has too much confidence (arrogance)in their products. Also Price does make a huge difference. System 76 sells systems with linux pre-installed and offer support but they are a priced a little too high so i buy a pc (with windows) erase windows and install linux myself because i save hundreds of dollars in some cases.

Posts here have me thinking....I can NOT understand how people have been brainwashed into supporting corporations (no matter what they do) Even threatening violence against others who say something they dislike about a product their favored company produces.
