    Not any sysadmin. I've been one for over 15 years and have no gripes with Redmond. Please speak for yourself as you have every right to. But don't assume we all feel that way. I can name many with my view.

    VB is not that bad. Actually, it's an easy gateway to programming. Granted using it now is like driving a car without powersteering, but it was more than functional.

    I've never had an apple device but I'm a member of webOSnation, crackberry and androidcentral* and I've said the same things there - loyalty* to a corporation is the most brain dead thing I could think of - be it loyalty to HP, Microsoft, Blackberry, Google or whoever - it's shows low critical reasoning skills. Problem is that the paradox is that mobile nations doesn't actually have a mobile nations forum where those of us not licking corporate boots or singing the company song can post - so we have to take our pick.


    * that forum is just too big, so I rarely post there.

    ** Product preference is a different thing.

    I gotta second stmav's response here. I am a longtime sysadmin and I got very few issues with them.

    I don't. I'm just a regular consumer/user. So maybe that is where the disconnect lies?

    So in order to off set the fanboyism, you counter with posts that consistently rip the o/s. That's just as bad as fanboyism, and in fact only encourage more over the top blind posts, rather than curb them.

    I guess only blind fans like Socialcarpet understand why they let Apple get away with huge mark ups.

    Sorry, but Apple doesn't rip you off. You rip you off by purchasing their products at high prices for your own reasons. Don't blame Apple if you want to be considered one of the in crowd. Other manufacturers make and sell excellent products at less money so buy from them.
