You're just another typical anti-mac fanboy. You don't know WHY you don't like Macs, you just hate them because
Calm down. You got all of that from my comment? A couple of points. 1) I actually own a MBP and have had the same share of hardware and software issues with it as I've had with my standard "PC" laptops. The biggest problem I had was Apple issued an update to OS X which either contained a bug or exposed some bug in my hardware. I suspect it was the wireless driver. Even after sending it in for service so they could replace the wireless card, it still wouldn't work. I had to BUY 10.5 to fix the problem. In many other OS I could roll back a driver if there was a problem. Not in this case. My point is this: the argument that you're paying for vetted hardware and software with limited configuration options is a double-edged sword. It can be a VERY expensive double-edged sword and I will very likely not be purchasing another Apple computer. I don't see how that makes me an anti-mac fanboy or whatever because my decision is based on actual experience. 2) My response to the author's statement was general because his statement was very general. Of course it has gotten easier over the years, my comment doesn't say it hasn't. We all remember trying to fix the old IBMs or the Compacs that hand funky proprietary systems. If you think about it that's always how it starts. You get businesses building new technologies and then after a certain amount of time a workable standard emerges (either intentionally or intentionally).
