I am not promoting Microsoft

I buy PC computers that I assemble myself, mother boards, RAM, hard-drives, cases, power supplies... I just plug them together, and I have a "Windows" pc, that I can install Windows on, I could put Linux on it, and can even put Hackintosh on it, albeit against their wishes.

What can I do if I buy a Mac? Nothing. If I buy a Windows PC with Microsoft Windows on it, I can reformat it and get it running without Windows and without Microsoft... try doing that with a Mac.

I love the free market; if everyone stopped buying Apple, they would be forced to change the way they do business or go out of business. But just buying from them because it is trendy or their computer has a cool looking shape, instead of researching specifications, does not help the free market.
