The issue is that the parts are not standard PC parts which is a different matter.

Which would still make it cost prohibitive to do so, since it would be a mac-specific part. referring back to my original post, (the part of which you decided to ignore in your rebuttal)

And need we talk about the fact that up until recently, you could only install (basically) Apple sanctioned expansion cards in their machines?

which would appear to be making a comeback.

And therein lies the crux of it. And the iMac and mini still have most of their parts soldered on.

Driver support is not Micosoft's fault. That's the Vendors. And need we talk about the fact that up until recently, you could only install (basically) Apple sanctioned expansion cards in their machines? Or their new way of doing things, which is "We'll package all of the hardware up in a neat little box, which you can't open, so we can force you to upgrade the hardware in order to upgrade the OS."

I'm still on a grandfathered unlimited AT&T account. I come nowhere near 3GB of usage each month (I'm almost always on WiFi), but I have no intention of dropping down to a cheaper account. It's maddening that I can't get tethering (officially...) without going to one of their crap capped plans.

Exactly the reason I'm still on Verizon's unlimited. Although I try to use the mobile data as much as possible, and with 3rd party tethering apps. Hopefully something changes before my next contract so I don't have to shell out full price for a phone though...

Real computer scientists don't comment their code. The identifiers are so long they can't afford the disk space.

Working...
