I don't get it either... And I'm a Mac guy these days. It's just a fucking phone that does some other stuff, but Jobs and his fanboys treat every product coming out of that company like it's the Second Coming of Christ.

Back in early 2006, my phone (running Windows Mobile 5) could multitask. Frankly, I'm appalled that the iPhone OS didn't have that (and copy and paste, and MMS messaging) from the start.

Here's the thing: most of the tools that I use to do my job are *nix-based. This leaves me with three choices: run them under Windows in either Cygwin or VMWare; install Linux and put up with the shitty desktop experience (fuck OpenOffice); run a Mac and be able to use all my software and have Microsoft Office to boot.

Believe me, I hate the zealots. Those people are assclowns and would buy a wet turd if it had an Apple logo on it. But the OS is pretty slick and takes advantage of the hardware in a way that Windows doesn't.

Note: Windows 7 is pretty damn good. Nothing against it; I'd just rather run OSX.
