Mac OS X is merely a locked down version of Linux

This post over on Google+ made me chuckle greatly 1.

Umm

It is meant to be funny, right?

Mac OS X is merely a locked down version of open-source Linux

Oh.

My favourite quote?

Macs are ridiculously overpriced. Not only do you get much less for your money when you buy ANY type of Macintosh computer compared to your other options, but you get royally screwed whenever you want any halfway-decent Mac machine. Compare 17-inch MacBook Pros starting at an astounding $2500 with thousands of 17-inch alternatives starting at just $599.

Yep. You do that.

The fact that so much work went into writing all that is rather mind-blowing to me. So much effort, so little insight.

Well, it is Google+ I suppose.


  1. Not a full on laugh, obviously.
