For me, the thing with Apple is about the OS and the aesthetics, not the
cpu.  Yeah, Power CPU's are cool and AMD 64's rock. But at the end of
the day, its really about getting the job done.  I think that's really
what the mac is about.

As far as the DRM issue goes, I'm against it, but at the moment its very
unlikely that I'll have the time or the energy to try and change it. So,
again, for me, its really water under bridge, and I'm back to, "will it
get the job done?" The answer is a yes. If I can get it done with a
little "style" then that's a bonus.
