Apple A Forbes article notices that while the iPad's reception from the public and the mainstream press has been overwhelmingly positive, the prevailing sentiment among some alpha geeks has been negative to the extreme. The conclusion, of course, is that these people aren't reacting to what the iPad is, but rather what it represents: a violation of the ethos of the personal computer. The author of the Forbes article concludes that much of the anti-iPad vitriol is hyperbole, and doesn't help advance the cause. It's a thought-provoking question.

Microsoft had done stranger things than killing .NET... I still personally won't use it. I don't care if it's faster, it's not portable enough (different versions of the tinting on different windows platforms) and overall it's a bit buggy sometimes. Anyone who ever used version 1.0 will know what I mean (the infamous unknown error has occurred). The might decide tomorrow that they're new XYZ is better and make everyone use that with an interpreter in between for
Legacybsruff.
