RadioShackRobI really don't know, I just hate Apple products for so many reasons. And although microsoft dominates as a monopoly one thing is true, they don't exactly manufacture PCs. It just annoys me that you have to pay 3 grand for a mac with any decent hardware that you could pay closer to 1-1.5k for on a pc...

I'm not sure if it was in this thread or not, but i did give a reason for that at some point... not sure what point that was or when it was though...

But, the reason the Apple computers cost so much more than a PC is that Apple is the only manufacturer of the computers themselves, and Apple uses its own OS and software on them, which costs them quite a bit to make. Its simple, PC's are so much cheaper because there are hundreds of companies that make them. Also, those companies don't have to make the OS for them at the same time, Apple does.

There used to be Apple clones. Before Apple made some changes that killed the clone business.

According to legal definition, Microsoft is not a monopoly. However, they are by and far the most powerful player in the market. Apple Computer is the closest thing they have to a rival, except, Apple is not really competing for the same market.

The last I recall when I used to read Microsoft press releases that Microsoft doesn't even consider Apple a threat. They really aren't trying to compete against them. The threat they see as the biggest is the Linux Community. They know once it becomes as easy to install programs on linux as it is on Windows, the tides will turn drastically.

The main problem with Linux is that people think you have to be some kind of lifeless nerd to use it.

Sometimes that's true.

The main problem with linux is lack of software support, as said above that once they figure that out, its over for Microsoft. Well? What is Linux waiting for?

Unity. The major flaw with linux is no one is working together on it. Everyone wants to make their own build and feels it's better than others. Those that can make a decent build sell it for server software like Red Hat does. If the people still releasing it for free combined their resources and knowledge, within a few years we would probably have something that rivals anything Microsoft has to offer that uses less resources and a hell of a lot more secure.
