Mac OS X Remember the good old days? The good old days when people cried loads of foul over the inconsistency in the Windows user interface? You know, applications deviating from the norm - with even Microsoft seemingly doing whatever pleased them? This was considered a huge problem, especially by those from the Macintosh and Apple camp. Oh, how the times have changed.

No, the price to volume sales inversely made is not a good deal for anyone but the middle man. The manufacture has more infrastructure to maintain (support, releases, so forth), the user has a diluted experience with the company and also lower quality of releases (fewer, more bugs, so forth), and the middle man (apple) gets to a high percentage of the cut along with demand due to being the outlet for a 'better' sales record.

The bottomline is apple is adding nothing to the software landscape, they are simply taking as much from the ground swell of idiots. Maybe the bozo consumer deserves to be raped by apple.
