OSNews, Generic OSes Over the years, we've occasionally run an "Ask OSNews" feature, wherein a reader asks us a question and we answer it publicly. Lately I've really been enjoying Slate's Dear Prudence advice column and the ever-interesting Straight Dope, and I thought we should see if we can get more OSNews readers to submit questions, and turn Ask OSNews into a more-regular thing. If your question falls outside of our domain expertise, we'll try to track down an expert to help out. And of course, our responses will always be supplemented by further advice from OSNews readers in the comments. Questions are welcome on any topic ranging from OSes and computing to science and geek culture. Contact us with your questions. (Please include "Ask OSNews" in the subject). Today's question is from a young student in Hungary who's seduced by the faraway siren song of Apple's marketing and wonders, "should I switch?"

So hang on - where does Apple fit into the equation? your government is robbing you blind and you blame Apple for it. Maybe you should look overseas for employment if your life is being made as difficult as humanly possible.


Where in his post is he blaming Apple?

Look at his post; his complaining about the price is a jab at the price in which Apples cost in his country and therefore blaming of Apple for it.

Huh? He's just explaining why Apple products are so expensive in Brazil, points to the *right* culprits, without ever once blaming Apple for anything.

You just read something that wasn't there, I'm afraid.
