Apple "Apple just posted its hotly-anticipated Q2 2013 earnings, and the company posted a profit of $9.5b on revenues of $43.6b, compared to $11.6b in profit on $39.2b in revenue this quarter last year and $13.1b in profit on $54.5b in revenue last quarter. That's right in line with the company's guidance from last quarter. Most importantly, iPhone sales are fairly flat year-over-year. Apple sold 37.04 million in Q2 2013 versus last year's 35.1 million, a modest growth of seven percent. iPad sales for the quarter were 19.5 million, up a massive 65 percent from last year's 11.8 million, but the average selling price (ASP) dropped fairly steeply year-over-year, likely due to the introduction of the cheaper iPad mini."

I think you and I have different ideas of who techs are. Hint: mine are not multimedia masters.

Doing a bit of video, audio, photos, these days that's not a multi-media master. That's just using the Internet.

Even Miguel de Icaza said: "Computing-wise that three week vacation turned out to be very relaxing. Machine would suspend and resume without problem, WiFi just worked, audio did not stop working, I spent three weeks without having to recompile the kernel to adjust this or that, nor fighting the video drivers, or deal with the bizarre and random speed degradation that my ThinkPad suffered."

Yeah Miguel is an odd duck (in terms of his journey founding gnome to abandoning the free software movement completely). I can't speak to his experience, only my own. I haven't had to do any of that muck on my thinkpad in a long time. And when I did, it was on installation, not in the middle of a vacation.

I either no what I'm doing better than him ( unlikely), I'm just lucky, or I do different things than he does in a different environment.

Now that I think about it, UEFI non mac systems are a bit flaky to deal with in liunx right now ( due mainly to secure boot & implementation issues with the manufacturer), so maybe not on those right now.
