Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

There is no animosity towards Apple here. Its just that there are some people who who apparently would like to run the Apple OS on non Apple hardware. This may or may not be wise or cost effective but the legal issue is simply does Apple have the legal right to prevent this, presumably via licensing restrictions.

The relative merits of Apple OS and hardware versus other software and hardware is course totally irrelevant to the legal issues. You can surely appreciate the fact that different individuals will rate various software and hardware systems differently.

Yes, OSNews is just a big old attorney and paralegal community interested in this case only from a purely intellectual and professional point of view. The merits of Apple products or personal likes and dislikes play no role whatsoever in this. And Thom keeps writing opinion pieces on the case because he's a paralegal in training to become a lawyer specializing in copyright.

No fanboys or ignorant people here, move along.

If Thom's articles on Apple are a bit contrarian, the funny thing is that it's probably a reaction to shrill fanbois like you who go ballistic if you think someone has blasphemed against holy mother Apple.
