Just as I was mulling over the question of whether Apple’s recent decision to cripple the iPod touch, and what it meant about their future, daringfireball directed me to “Is Apple Going Rotten?” Although the recent decisions by Apple have only affected the iPod/iPhone products, if Apple has started viewing its mission as “use proprietary hardware and software to screw over consumers” that augurs bad news for the Mac in the long term. All of this makes me wonder if I should put the effort into learning what I’d need to know to make my next computer a purely linux machine.
