Horses for courses for me. Ill use whatever does the job best. Sadly, I've never been able to completely ditch MS OSs as in some areas, using Linux apps was just very painful.
Jobs products were never considered as closed hardwae and software and more expensive.

"They" weren't Google. Microsoft are making a lot of bungles pissing their "devotee's" off. It is a gamble, as are all new ventures, having a pool of cash behind them helps. Linux was ahead of Apple (10% of market) in world use of computers. Apple under Steve Jobs has and were claiming more ground

And it remains to be seen if Google does any better.
It hasnt with browsers.

And while ever anyone with even half a clue ships their hardware with that installed, it doesnt matter a damn to Microsoft.

We'll see...
It aint about cash.

Yes, but that wasnt due to a pool of cash.

There was never that much money pushing it.. No business model. Google (IMO) is pushing Internet connectivity with the software run on servers. Rod will still use his shonky copperwire while the rest of us will use the NBN

Just another of your pathetic little drug crazed fantasys.
Fuck all of it will get built in the 2 years thats all that lard arsed pommy cow has got left.
It wont even make it to your place, you watch.

The is precisely what Apple has done. They have always been the more user-friendly system and the more expensive. Apple has made usable what was only used by computer hobbyists.
