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.

You don't keep buying very expensive stuff if it's not worth it, do you?

You keep buying if the marketing is good and if you want to be elite and cool. And because you ended spending a large amount of money you try convincing yourself yiu have bought the best hardware and the best software in the world. And the best support. And the best integration. And you're cool too. And elite.

Geez, I heard that google is planning to throw away their bsd and Linux machines. They are going to buy Os X servers. Yahoo too. Even Microsoft engineers write their software on Os X boxes and secretely send it to build machines to compile. But MS is too ashamed to recognize. Even governments and armies use exclusively Os X and on a little planet out there, the green guys use Os X, too. This is because they know that apple produces the best software and the best hardware. And the best integration. It would be a stupidity on their behalf not to do so. Even MTV is playing music from ipods, and google runs youtube on a giant Ipod that apple designed specially for them.
