In thread "Mac users will luuuv Asus's Eee"\n[QUOTE="Ilgaz"]\nIn reality, that thing called "Linux" is not ready for MY Desktop and\nI am not giving it a chance until this weird fanaticism down to\ntrolling comp.sys.mac groups ends.[/QUOTE]\n\nFanaticism? Isn't the "It just works" Mac fanaticism due in large part\nto the fact that OS X runs only on proprietary hardware? This way Apple\nknows exactly which hardware it's dealing with and ajusting *their\nsoftware* to *their hardware* is much simpler. This fact is common\nknowledge.\n\nNow, we have a manufacturer who offers a version of Linux for his own\nmaterial. Don't you believe that the chances it works perfectly are much\ngreater than if Linux is installed on one of the millions different\nhardware configurations? They're playing the same game as Apple, except\nthey won't prevent any other OS to run on the Eee. They don't lock their\nhardware as Apple does.\n\nThis is why I entitled this thread "Mac users will luuuv Asus's Eee".\nThe Eee is "married" to its OS the same way that Apple hardware and OS X\nare. (Though, contrary to Mac hardware, it won't prevent any other OS to\nrun on it.)\n\nYour arguments make no sense: you're comparing Apples to Oranges.
