True, but the same can be said about Microsoft and Internet Explorer.  What
gives them the right to deeply integrate IE with the OS. Microsoft is more
known for pulling all kinds of crap (just look at Vista!  It's so bad I wish
I had the time and patience to switch to another OS).

Funny you should ask Greg.. Here is my latest blog posting. I was able to
get it to work with Web Interface but haven't tested it actually on a Citrix
box yet. Doubt I will.

Ok I don't usually rant too often but I've just about had my fill with Apple
Software. They have recently released a beta version of their
<http://www.apple.com/safari/> Safari Web Browser that runs on Windows .
Good for them. 

/Rant On
On the few Mac's I have used, I'll admit, I really like the Safari browser
it is quick and intuitive. That being said, Apple decided to bundle Safari
Beta 3 with its hailed Quicktime media player. The incessant beast that no
matter what you do plants itself in to your registry Run key and insists on
reappearing even if you delete it. 

Apple feels that it is in their right without even asking you during
installation, to place icons on your desktop, in your quicklaunch, in your
system tray and on your start menu not to mention in the root of your start
menu, not even in its own folder! This combined with the fact their
Quicktime qttask app getting put on the run key of the registry and can not
be removed no matter how hard you try, makes this Apple software a piece of
crap that should not ever be put on a Windows PC. 

Yeah, I know it is a beta but here is more crappola, because it included
Quicktime, the Safari beta uninstalled my version of quicktime that I had
all set up nicely and had already added my plugins to, and wiped it all out
leaving me to have to reconfigure quicktime again and go out and find the
plugins. 1st thing of course I have to do again, is to get that incessant
icon out of my system tray and quick launch bar. WTF? 

Apple, you are supposed to be a major player in the computer industry, why
can't you learn how the install process works in Windows and not be so
virulent? Ask users if they want you in all up in their face.. don't just
assume they do! 
 

Get a clue!

/Rant Off
