My favourite line is the first one...

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but they seem to be quite capable of doing that on their own, no?

@P-J

I wonder what business he is refering to in his open letter.... 10 years of producing nothing is a hard tradition to break from me thinks....

personally i think its just some made up fan mail...

The fact that he still has fans just goes to show how stupid some people really are!

Why can't they just re-do OS4 but have it capable of being installed on a normal PC? I'd be up to buy and give it a go if they did... I think they're just giving themselves unnecessary hassle by using bespoke hardware...

It's not really bespoke hardware, is it? Well, no more bespoke than an x86 Mac is? More 'crippled' I think.

I guess they wanted to go down the strict hardware route which I can understand. From the point of view of a smaller developer it's easier to get started because you can keep the playing field small.

...and lets face face it, it didn't hurt Apple, did it?

But at the of the day I imagine 99 out of 100 people have x86 hardware in their house.

It's a tough one.
