So when Apple's proprietary encryption software suffered a problem, Apple users could do nothing but wait for Apple to deliver a fix; there's nobody else that are allowed to fix Apple's proprietary software but Apple. And when that fix ostensibly arrived, Apple users had to hope it wasn't bundled with some malware too (as is often in proprietary software).

I shouldn't feed the troll, but Apple released the patch and simultaneously announced the issue so there was no waiting. IIRC the trusted jailbreak community had a patch the next day. As to the rest of your rant, if you're trying to glamorize non-proprietary software by comparing it's benefits to someone technical vs. my six year old using her iPod then you really don't have much of an argument. And to those people who may have known about this and fixed it without telling anyone (which puzzles me why you made that an example of why non-proprietary software is better): FU you selfish bastards.

You took something mature that works and gave us something broken with form over function. When you tell me "So let's all slow down" as if it's a dialog and then lecture to me that you're going to do it anyway you might as well simply say "You're reading it wrong" and be done with it.

Since I'm referencing an Internet meme to make my point I'll double-down and say, "Six lines of text ought to be enough for anybody."
