General Development While the iPad can certainly be debated as a product, people on the internet are discussing not the product, but the shift devices like the iPhone and iPad represent: a shift away from a computer being accessible to it being something closed and impenetrable. Is this a future we want for ourselves?

I too enjoy to build my own PC´s, use Linux, and keep control over my computer stuff...

Right now I am on Windows 7, as it is simply very impressive, but I can still mostly do all my FLOSS apps on win7...

I dislike all Apple products, as it is always closed and dumbed down... I never liked Mac... I never liked OSX...

My take is that geeks will stick with Linux, and the rest will make Win7 the OS of choice of the planet... Easier to pirate than XP ;)

Apple is mostly for sophisticated snobs, sorry, no offense...
