I'm not an Apple fan either. I have my opinions of the late Steve Jobs and I best keep those opinions to myself. I'm not even a Bill Gates fan, really.. which is why my desktops run Ubuntu Linux.
I didn't really mean it like that I'm not Apple bashing. I come from a mainframe background before we had PCs and Apple was not the first thing on the market. By the time Apple arrived on the scene I had been using various iterations of the "clone wars" and was used to supporting that. I supported PCs and networks for a number of years before I basically quit supporting PCs and concentrated on Networks. During this entire time I worked only with PCs. I won't stray to far afield from my work setup when it comes to my home setup. Why introduce more frustration in my life? As far as Steve and Bill goes, well, I don't know either one, not likely to at this juncture either (Bill's too rich and Steve's too dead) so I really have no opinion about them. However, I will say that a good deal of Apple's ideas and inspiration came straight out of PARC (Palo Alto Research Center - Xerox!). Yep, Xerox. A company with fantastic ideas and engineering and not enough vision to stop running into walls! Okay, there's the history for today.
