Attacking Apple with More Authority
While I have tried to persist in taking Apple to task for turning the Mac from a valuable tool for those of us still engaged in writing based on research, disregarding us for the sake of becoming "the world's coolest toymaker," my own position as an observer is relatively naive. On the other hand we have Lloyd Chambers (diglloyd), who maintains the Mac Performance Guide site. He has now come out with an extended analysis of what he calls "Apple Core Rot." I found this thanks to a pointer from Robin Harris on ZDNet, but all the real substance is in Chambers' analysis. My guess is that it will only be a matter of time until "What's wrong with the Mac?" turns into "What's left that right with the Mac?"
