Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

Who the hell buys Apple devices with Linux compatibility in mind? Hate to break it to you, but that's a pretty dumb move.

Why would that be a dumb move?
It's always worked pretty well, up until now. Just a PC after all.

It's a common hardware platform with a large user base ... unlike the bazillion different pc combos from dozens of vendors, or home built machines ...

Linus Torvalds, for a time, anyway. I have no idea if he still does.

some people actually like Apple's hardware but don't care about their software or prefer/require a different operating system(s) other than OSX.

OSX is puke compared to Unity. Even Win7 seems better in some ways.

Apple's genius has always been about hardware, not software. iOS for example is totally uninspired except that the hardware integration is so good that buttery feeling is just awesome compared to Android devices. But features and usability are overrated.

Maybe they should try a refund from Apple for Mac OS X then.
