Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

Yeah, the "it's not for me" thought is sometimes hard to transmit when dealing with the least mature kind of Mac user, the one who uses it "because x told me it's better, and I don't regret it the tiniest bit".

I used to think this way about Linux, when I was younger... Then I had to use Windows and realized that it was now an OK operating system and that the OS didn't actually matter for what I want to do as long as it's sufficiently flexible. Some never get that chance.

Today, I believe desktop OSs are pretty much on par. Each one is better in some areas and worse in others. There's no intrinsic "superiority" anymore. There are only qualities like speed, flexibility, ease of use, good look, application compatibility, freeware catalog, repository system...
