I have nothing against Apple.... Infact i agree with you about the
quality of their products. I was just picking on Githin who thinks
that everything that is not "free" is not worth using.
Free software is great and it doesn't hurt to have software that's
closed too. Most of the folks who talk about free software in cec are
not coders themselves. They are into it like its some kind of a fad!

Macs bring to CG is amazing too.  You may have a thousand things against
Macs, but many of the Hollywood production studios will stop working if you
don't have those video processing tools and the processing calibre Macs
hold. Macs are BIG. And GNU/Linux holds a future (present too, i think!)
here, if you can feed it with cpu/gpu cycles.  Going back to were we
started, I think I read a few months back that Linus uses a G5.. well
running Linux on it :p

The more "why"s I ask about my self, the more mysterious it becomes.
