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.

Very nice said. Nice argued and logical. I might add that - if anyone remembers- 5 or 6 years ago were flames on forums about "which OS is better"? To support their theories, apple fanboys mentioned the integration. They even said without any arguments that powerpc cpus are much better than intel ones. I might ask: why has apple moved from that marvelous powerpc? If you ask today, the very same apple fanboys will say that intel cpus are much better than powerc and that's why apple has moved. That's right: same people saing two different things. If you ask the fanboys if they like the move, some will say no (because now, everyone and their can install Os X on average PC's and they aren't an "elite" any more), some will say yes (apple said it's better and apple is always right).

Apple isn't even a hardware company. They don't manufacture their products, they buy them from OEM's and brand them. And resell. Intel is a hardware company. Nvidia is a hardware company. Acer is a hardware company. Apple is just a designer.
