I'm afraid people assume that if something is wildly popular it has to
be trustworthy. In the same way, OSX is enjoying some well deserved
popularity ... but that does NOT mean that Apple is any different than
Microsoft. They are both manipulating users to gain/hold market share.

Macs are just a PC in a shiny case now. OSX is what makes that hardware
unique, nothing more.
