And annoying. They aren't an option unless you go through a convoluted
process to stop them and they balk at installing if you have any kind of
safety program running, which most do.


Why did you post this 100% OT post tor.p.d. where it serves no purpose??

It seems to me you should have raised this issue in one of the Windows NGs
rather than in a photo NG.

If Apple
didn't provide the software, then I'd have thought their computers
would be cheaper.

you thought wrong.

I thought differently :-)


no, you thought wrong.


and you're an idiot.


ad hominem. you lose.

You're fooled by advertising you clickm on a link you're data harvested and
you think the game is free.


which has absolutely nothing to do with free system updates, and apple
doesn't monetize users via advertising either.

Yes it is.


nope. it was never about clones.

Why don't Apple write an OS for PCs ? Then OS X would have a bigger market
share. Why not export iOS so it can be used on the andriod system ?
Again increasing their market share.


apple wisely does not chase market share.

porting macos and ios to pc and android hardware would involve a
significant number of compromises because that hardware lacks key
features. the result would be awful.

apple is the first trillion dollar company. they're doing something
right.

Power computing put together hardware that was almost mac level
and then they put Apple software on it which only just worked.
Pretty short lived idea.


actually, their computers exceeded macs in some ways and they were
quite successful at it.

Irrelivent, and you know it or should know it.


not irrelevant at all.

So, makes no diffence, they did it at power computing didn't they.
If they cna do it how come apple can't.


whoosh.

apple is the first trillion dollar company. they're doing something

Yep not charging for the OS's seems to be working, just include
it in the price of the computer when purchased.


except the price of the computers did not change when the os went from
paid to free.

They did have faster clock speeds but when it came to software updates most
failed despite these updates being free.


the updates did not fail.

Quite successful didn;t last long though did it.


it lasted up until apple canceled cloning.

and they had to pay a fee to Apple for each license sold.


of course.

dell, lenovo and others pay microsoft to license windows.

android device makers pay google to license android (other than the
ones that just use the core that lacks all the expected features).

Why did they have to pay Apple.


because mac os is owned by apple.

You could only buy them for a couple of years , then they went out of
business as steve job didn't want to license mac software to anyone else.


because it was detrimental to apple.
