Yeah, you just went and looked that up to defend against a really old Mac rant. Thunderbolt is available outside of Apple, but not widely adopted. That was the definition of 'proprietary' you had in mind, but you tripped over your own terminology. Next time you might use the phrase: 'Practically proprietary', or something like that. Or avoid it altogether by saying what you really mean: 'There isn't a Mac configuration that suits me.'

Oh, and it's trademarked and patented by Intel, not Apple. It isn't exclusive to Mac. In fact it works in Linux and Windows as well. Firewire, USB, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc, are trademark and patented as well. The reason you're confused about my definiton of proprietary is because this is the first time you've been called out for not knowing what you're talking about.
