    so you talk about people with ZERO apple experience but i think very bad about apple and i do have Apple Experience!
    Apple will never isolate me again in a world without piracy and open-source software.
    Apple destroyed 5 years of my life.
    No doubt the Performa 5200 was a dog. I might also point out that was a product of the Michael Spindler era, not Jobs. So again you have no real practical experience with any of Jobs era products. BTW it is very sad that a consumer product can "destroyed 5 years of my life." which leads me to think that the actual issue lies elsewhere.

    Why is there "Made in Finland", printed on my Nokia E7-00?

    I guess they can't make everything in Finland and then all ship it for cheap ass China prices in... Guess where? China.
    Well you may have one of the products that are made in Finland. No one ever said that that everything that nokia produces is made @ foxconn but you are very wrong in thinking that all of Nokia's products are made in Finland.

Far too many out there like to base their perceptions on the likes of the portrayal seen in "Pirates of Silicon Valley". Jobs, particularly in his younger years, was socially an ass and many still judge him by that alone.

    Just my opinion. From what I read, most people who use Mac have an inflated opinion of Apple and all things Apple. I've yet to encounter anyone who uses or owns Mac who has what I consider a somewhat objective viewpoint. I guess that implies that Mac/Apple products are very good or at least, is satisfying for those particular users. However, I guess there are some who switch back but probably a minority.

    My point is, then two-fold: 1) use/ownership of Apple products isn't necessary for a reasonable opinion on the 'Apple culture' of society and more specificially, for an opinion on Jobs and;
    2) there may be a tendency for Mac/Apple users to be biased in a 'pro' position or opinion on most things Apple.

    'Don't mind if I'm wrong on that as it's just my impression. I'm not *that* negative on it, actually... just think that there's two sides to it...

And BTW, I have been a Mac user far shorter then any of the other OS's I have used over the last 30 years.

    Who is singling out Apple? I thought the main complaint was that Jobs was getting this 'pay respects to a great man' reaction and some people were objecting.

    Many people don't know about Richie. Where is the discussion about him? The mainstream media hasn't made a big deal... some tech rags or blogs might have mentioned it but...

    Also, the mod here is a Mac user so you won't get any objective perspective here. I thought Linux ppl, in general, weren't overly fond of Apple/Jobs... the two are very contradictive.

    Although, the Unix part is one where there is a commonality, the values inherent in each are opposite, imho. But, what I have read of Jobs (how he was involved and his relations with co-founders of Apple, relations with politicians - e.g. Clinton etc), I really don't see the fascination or reason for praise. I guess it's just me... most people don't care about values or principles so they go with superficial values and ideals.
