But Adobe won't.
Ya know if you weren't a raging fanboi
...followed by a "raging fanboi" rant. Classy.
You throw Torvalds' name around a lot but you don't really seem to know who he is or what he does, do you?
So are the vast majority of Linux distributions, but it sure is nice to have options, isn't it?
Same here. I very much prefer using a standalone mail client for a number of reasons. But at the same time, I really appreciate having webmail as a backup. Both have their niches and I would not be comfortable relying exclusively on just one.
Calm down there, Bucky. It's just a phone.
At the end of the day, it's a fucking cell phone. Who the hell cares what other people want to buy?
Once upon a time, BlackBerries were at the top of the game in part because of their capabilities with enterprise services as well international data rates (great for traveling professionals). They were once the best phone to effectively manage centrally using the company server.
But then iPhones and Androids set the standard for modern smartphones - including usability, Exchange/ActiveSync, and most importantly, no more need for BES. It was great for its time but it's a horribly dated approach now. Troubleshooting BES issues and supporting clunky, clumsy, inconsistent BlackBerries has become one of the greatest headaches in my time in IT.
RIM had their chance to get their shit together and move forward with the times but I have yet to use a BlackBerry that wasn't incredibly frustrating to operate and troubleshoot.
Everyone's got their themed code names. OSX uses (or used) felines, Ubuntu uses alliterative and alphabetical animal appellations, Debian uses Toy Story characters, etc. I think it's fun.
But for Apple, cleaning this mess up will cost them 100 Grand.
And of those, the vast majority didn't adopt it by choice, they just let their device install the update when it notified them that one was available. They use it now whether they like it or not.
I bought a new phone with iOS7 preinstalled so I never had a choice in the matter, but I've been perfectly fine with it. The icons are kind of bright but the applications themselves are clean and sterile in their design. The visual flair (animated backgrounds, parallax effect) are superfluous but easily disabled.
Didn't Snake kill her?
Was this ever even really a concern? Any person running Linux on a Mac is not doing it because of the cost of the OS (which comes included with the hardware anyway). It's cool that Apple is making their upgrades free, but even $30 for previous upgrades is not that expensive if it's something you want or need.
