Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

Here is my original post in case you missed it:
----------------------
Apple has always taken a beating for the so-called "Apple Tax" the premium customers pay over similarly equipped PCs.


I built a Mac Pro Clone for $1500 a year or so ago. It actually ran OS X for awhile, until I had to go Windows for work.

These network related advances have revolutionized networking, making what was once difficult, painfully simple.

There are other wireless routers that come with easy-to-use software. While I have, and use, 4 Apple wireless routers in my home (overkill a little - but we get a lot of radio interference in our area) I would not hesitate to purchase another brand.

-------------------

Now, however you got all those things you accused me of from that, I don't know, but if you were trying to piss me off with a load of bull crap you have succeeded. Does that please you? Stop reading between the lines and take what is written for what it is. Idiot.

Then the Apple Mac isn't for you - so why is there even a debate? you purchase a Mac because you want to run Mac OS X; if you don't want to run Mac OS X then it is entirely a waste of money to purchase a Mac and run Windows full time on it.

Oh yes, the PC user logic coming right out now - when you fail to address valid points being raised you attack the person personally. You're as bad as those people who go out of their way to create whole websites bashing Mac's. You're like the Fred Phelps of the PC world who hates Mac's so much you spend you ever waking moment thinking about it - which says more about you than anything about Mac users.

I don't feel the need to spend hours trying to get Windows working on my computer like I see people lustfully slobbering over Mac OS X and trying to get it running on their home made PC. I'm happy with what I've got and if you want to run Windows then all power to you - whatever floats your boat. What I have a problem with are people some how saying that Mac's suck in general because they don't match your specific requirements. The issue has nothing to do with 'being sore' about people hating Mac's (I couldn't give a crap what people think in that regard) but people who knowingly lie and do so with impunity.

Kaiwai. I DID make my points and you just talked around them, providing your own personal opinion about what you THINK I meant by my posts. Not what I was saying. I got pissed because you obviously are not reading what I am writing and trying to play semantical games with my very simple original point. You just look for something to argue about and you continued to attack me, likely hoping I would lose my temper like I did. And you are STILL putting YOUR thoughts into MY words, making them something other than they were.

I said (try taking this literally could you?): I built a mac pro clone (internals, obviously not the layout and outer case) for $1500.

How can you possibly read all the stuff (you wrote many many paragraphs expounding on that) you wrote into that sentence?

Honestly, you think TOO MUCH. You are trying to read stuff into sentences that just are not there. What pissed me off is that YOU were putting words/thoughts in MY mouth that just weren't being said.
