Facts never enter in as valid in opinion as they don't matter there.  Facts on 
the other hand can make a liar out of the person who disagrees with the facts 
regardless.  Mac is NOT known for its value in hardware and is in fact of 
only average quality but for its superior quality in seamless integration of 
software.  People become willing to pay extra for that in spite of the fact 
that if you work at it, you CAN make Linux do absolutely anything a Mac can 
do.  The problem is not that Linux can't do it but that it is not done FOR 
you in Linux like it is in Mac.  On the other hand, the only thing I have 
seen a windoze machine do very well and often is crash, ...people also seem 
willing to pay extra for THAT ability.  For the life of me, I can not 
understand why!
