Apple Being the brains behind Microsoft has made Bill Gates the wealthiest guy in the world. So he can pretty much afford to buy his kids any gadgets they want. However, Apple devices are banned in the Gates’ house. This is surprisingly not a rule set by Bill Gates. Melinda Gates has made it very clear in an interview with The New York Times that she does not allow Apple hardware in the house. If the kids want an iPod they’ll have to settle for a Zune instead.

UI is not just about look, it's about feel too.

I don't care anymore if I can make Gnome or KDE sing (even less I care about Fluxbox or whatever), all I care is a good UI that makes me more productive.

And ugly? Well, I don't think OS X is the prettiest UI I have ever seen, but it's damn pretty, and it doesn't get in my way.

And 7 has a good-looking interface, but go to the Control Panel and you'll see what a mess it is. Again, UI is not just about the looks.

I'm no fan boy but at least until now I think Apple has been the only one making a UI that makes sense.
