Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

I prefer to be in charge of my own destiny [...] I also use stock software (Linux etc). It's not only free, it gives me the greatest degree of control over my machine. I also benefit from the fact that there is no hidden vendor agenda compromising my machines.

You know, most of Linux development is financed by big iron vendors, directed at servers and such ...and there were instances of some Linux kernel devs expressing their displeasure of that situation, & how it negatively impacts ~desktop utility.
