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.

I enjoy Apple products. Opinions like yours used to bother me. But then someone pointed out something to me. I'll share that with you - what do you expect Apple's reaction to be to your extreme Apple bashing? Well it would be this "Apple thanks you and hopes you continue to enjoy non Apple products. Your choice is our pleasure!" Honestly, Apple doesn't want you as a customer, so your rant is just pure hyperbole to them. Infuriating, isn't it? :-P

I simply get sick of Apple products being touted as supreme, when I see them as nothing more than supremely limiting and expensive.
But then, my favourite desktop is KDE. I love configuration options.

The main point was that really, not being able to use apple products is no biggie, as most items have plenty of alternatives, which tend to be far less restricted.
