Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

I settled on the Mac a few years ago because it is a tool to me. And I want my tools to be reliable. I have a stack of other machines that I use as a hobby or for learning running various OS's but my Macbook is my main machine. It is as utilitarian as Linux for a network administrator but has almost all the interoperability advantages of Windows.

This brings me to a problem that I have with this site. All of the reporting on Patents and how Apple is being a bully. I don't really care about that stuff when choosing an OS and hardware. I just want it to work. I always thought when reading your articles well maybe it matters that much to him. But in this case you have failed to "put your money where your mouth is" and have given your hard earned pay to a company you consider evil. If Apple's business behavior doesn't matter enough for you to avoid buying their products why waste your time writing about it. Any future article I read of yours decrying that Apple is a horrible horrible company will now come off as disingenuous.
