Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

True... But you did let it through right? ;) I'm not in any way implying you shouldn't have - it is certainly an entertaining read. I just wish someone who didn't sound like a total loon had taken a crack at defending Apple instead of this kind of whiny "Microsoft stole our lunch money" revisionism that really does Apple no justice - that whole affair was eons ago and has nothing to do with the Apple of today. Why whine over the Apple that might have been when you have the Apple of today to be proud of? I don't get it at all...

Come on now, the author is someone who goes by the name UMAD - obvious troll is obvious right?

I stopped reading 1/3 of the way though...

I'm not that much interested in Apple or Microsoft sort of things, but I simply don't trust an author who's using Greek words he obviously doesn't understand:
Software patents in particular are regarded by a good many in these forums as the antithesis of all that is wrong with this industry.
