No, I think there is a lot of healthy discussion and lot of people will give constructive honest feedback about Apple, if Apple are not being positive or behaving in a manner that is not to their liking.
I think issue with you is that we know you don't like Apple (your decision) and have almost taken this as personal crusader to try and show us all that Apple is no good. That is your believe and I don't want to change you. But at least be fair and objective in your ranting with some factual evidence or supported links or least try.
To be frank you as bad as your opposite so called Apple 'Fanboy', since nothing is as black or white in this world.
I am not a techy or IT expert, but I enjoy Apple products and overall believe in Apple's business model, but if I see Apple are screwing up, I will say something very quickly.
I visit this site because I learn a lot about Apple and other very interesting concepts, ideas, read interesting viewpoints (majority of the time) and get a history lesson on Apple and IT development over the years.
My point is if you do not like Apple fair enough, but at least be civil in putting across your opinions. Youa re not only person to use foul lanaguage and name calling, so I really write this to entire community to have healthy discussion and not get into kindergarden name calling match.
I am shareholder of Apple, proud of company, since it has successful turn itself around from when a gut feeling told me to buy their shares in 1999, when I was told MS was the way to go. (probably written about this 4-5 times on forum sorry).
I hope MS does bring its 'A' game, since Apple will up their innovation to compete and secondly it all good for the consumers including me.
Lastly I looked at Zune HD and it good competition to iPod Touch, unfortunately it maybe to late to provide good competition due to less than stellar inital effort by MS.
