Why I Avoid Apple Products

<< < (5/9) > >>

Excellent post, app. I agree with everything that you've said. The SAD part is, that Apple does make nice stuff... I wish that they would loosen up a bit and try to compete on a more level playing field - but why should they? What they're doing now REALLY works for them!

Today, the most compelling reasons I have for choosing something else over an Apple product all comes down to choice and freedom. I like being free to choose from many options, and unless Apple decides to give me that, I'll continue to stay away from their products.

I want to choose my hardware, my software, and everything else...not allow a company to tell me what to use, where I can shop, what I am allowed to buy, who I can code for, etc.

Well said. :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

One more thing ;)

While the very first computer I built in '75 used the same processor (6502) as the original '76 Apple-1, we sort of forked in direction after that. Still, I've watched Apple's progress a something of a horrified onlooker for years now. The OS had advantages when I started doing graphic work, but i found i was never comfortable with it. Each new development is interesting, though. This appeared in Windows Secrets a couple of days ago.
