So the company that owns CUPS, created WebKit(the basis for Safari and Chrome), is the largest distributor of UNIX in the world, and nearly singlehandedly crafted the digital media revolution isn't an IT company?!? It isn't Apple's fault that they're also making money faster than they can count it. OK, it actually is their fault, but that shouldn't be held against them. There is nothing in the rule book that says an IT company can't also be successful. Just because they've managed to figure out how to provide an open-source OS (Darwin is open-source) AND make money is no reason to dislike them...unless...are you by any chance an ex-Sun employee?
