Apple If you have Apple's QuickTime media player and/or iTunes installed on your Windows machine, you might want to keep an eye on apple's Software Update tool. Apple is once again using the update tool to push unwanted software onto users' machines without asking for permission.

I don't really subscribe to the notion that Linux/BSD (and FOSS in general) is end-user oriented.


Historically, it hasn't been; it's been shamelessly and self-consciously developer-oriented, on the theory that enticing developers (and making life easier for them) will ultimately lead to better software. Although that attitude's been changing lately (and that change has been meeting resistance, too).

But I'm just mindlessly repeating common knowledge, ignore me.
