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.

Apple is the company that came on a market suffocated by Windows and cheap PC-clones and basically said "this is our stuff, we think it's so good we're gonna sell it at these outrageous prices."


Except that the market wasn't suffocated by windows when Apple first came to market.

In fact, quite the opposite: there was huge amount competition in the market at the time.
