iMac related but OT, I just tested out Turbo Boost Switcher, a free utility that turns off Intel's permanent Turbo Boost mode. This is now installed on my 27" iMac i9 5K and OMG what a difference.
This util is aimed at preventing MBPs and MBAs burning your lap and battery life lasting longer, and it does that, but my iMac loves it too. I see no performance change so far but it is cool and silent now. Link: https://www.rugarciap.com/turbo-boost-switcher-for-os-x/
Excellent article. I am so glad at least somebody knows and writes about the history of Apple accurately.
Although only mentioned in passing I am pleased you mentioned the costs of those powerful Macs such as the "Mac IIfx--with a starting price well above $17,000 in today's money--with the much faster and more powerful Quadra 900, priced closer to a current-day $13,000." It helps put the cost of the new Mac pro in perspective and hopefully helps quash this totally silly meme that Apple has priced itself out of the pro-market spread by those that can't afford or justify one but secretly want one.

The free Player version has been the norm on the Windows side for years. Just like the Windows side, finding the link to the Free version is a challenge.
However, for those looking, there is no link. You have to register first, even if like me you have an account for the paid version 11, you still have to create a new registration for the free version.

100% of professionals are looking for a powerful computer that they can upgrade/expand over time.
99.99% of professionals did not ask for this extremely expensive specific video editing computer.
99.99% of professionals will not buy this extremely expensive specific video editing computer.
Therefore - the Mac Pro is in every way overpriced for the professional market.
Pointing to the .02% of professionals who might want this and making an argument in their support while ignoring pretty much the entire market... that's a stretch.
