ok so apparently it's trendy to hate apple and to want them to fail?

i'm not part of that. i just want my tools to work well. all tools suck, in different ways. all tools have trade-offs, and the downsides to those trade-offs must be mitigated no matter what tools you use.

i use apple tools because i'm intimately familiar with the tradeoffs of all major platforms and the upsides minus the time it takes to mitigate the downsides is greater there than other platforms.

Hey everybody! My name is Derrick (not my real name), and I just quit Twitter. I migrated over here to hopefully find an online community that’s not all hate, gloom, and doom. My primary interests are Star Trek, puppies, left wing politics, history, and keeping this account separate from my RL identity. That about does it for now! Hey hey hey, everyone!
