Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

It's "fine" because you're fine with the fact that it doesn't run any new software. I've owned a Powerbook and used it long its time, and compared to a Windows PC running an older version of Windows, it was really really painful. Consider using Windows XP (from 2001) today: you may not like it, but it still kinda works. Consider OS X Panther (2003): it doesn't even have a current browser. Add to it the fact that Apple force-obsoletes older hardware so that installing a newer version of OS X is a real chore.

My countryside computer is a Pentium 3, 500 MHz. It runs the latest version of Xubuntu, with updated Firefox and Flash as of April. Installation "just worked", which is more than you can say about installing Leopard on a sub 866 MHz Quicksilver.
