    You forgot the $1800 Apple laptop they used to write their pretentious papers as a “market response” to those Microsoft-operated computers which just “don’t work as well” as the Apple ones.

    While not official, I’m sure the reasoning around the time that market campaign “It just works” was rather similar. Scumbags.

      Somewhat of an oversimplification.

      The WinXP/Vista days weren’t very fun for people tasked with doing tech support for friends and relatives. I ended up buying a Mac for my mom and wife because I just didn’t have the time to be patching and fixing stuff at the frequency required. Windows 7 changed some of that, but comparable Windows hardware at the time was priced about the same (OS was good, much of the hardware was crap).

      Now it’s gone the other way, the Windows OS is yet again crap, but the Windows hardware, in my mind, is as good or better than it’s ever been. I’m terrified of a relative getting a Win10 box though and asking why updates are failing.

      I had a soft spot for Microsoft in the Gates/Balmer days, but now the company is run by what are even bigger white hating homersexuals than the ones running Apple (they do both suck though I will admit).
