I will tell you what... My desktop PC (windows 7) broke and I really do not miss it, if that tells you anything. If there is one thing Apple has going for it, its integration -an ecosystem. I actually think I brought this up before.
I also brought up the point where, to me, apple products are synonymous with generic, much as "kleenex" is synonymous with facial tissue.
I think the ecosystem is what is tripping me up in some places.
I think this is what microsoft is doing with windows 8. An ecosystem.
Most people run from storms, I run to them (back by popular request )
