That's fine. The important lesson, though, is that even if you don't
like it, it doesn't mean the Mac OS is bad, or indeed that there is
anything wrong with it at all. Your way is your way; that does not
mean it's the right way.

I don't think so. I think that Linux appeals to techies & geeks, while
the Mac appeals to non-techies and non-geeks. I don't think either is
right or wrong; they are just different.

I use all of them and like all of them for some things and not for others.
