  • This is exactly, which is not only a reason to switch on to free products, but which already got me to switch, so that my iMac now runs a Gentoo-Linux with KDE as base. I also wrote a blog about my way from Apple to Linux, so if you are interested, feel free to check by at Song: Beware of that Fruit (Broken Apple Heart) Filed under: Broken Apple Heart — January 31, 2006 @ 1:41 pm (What do you think, why Macs no longer Smile?) Chorus: I was an Apple User and loyal to the core, But one grey day I realized what made my heartache soar, They want to make the big bucks now and want no one to see, That ever more surveillance takes the Users rights as fee. – I was a little Bugger, when I saw the first of Mac, Discovered there then Shufflepuck and all the time came back, It belonged to parents friends then, but my will it showed its grip, And when they tried to take “My Mac”, their efforts meant a zip. – My third Mac, it was bigger, not so cute, but lovely, too, And to my greatest pleasure, I owned the smiling goo, I was a big fanatic, Apple was it all the time, And when I got to talking, all my friends could do was wine. – Then came the time of MacOSX, it was the thing for me, The beta was the slowest beast, but with it I felt free, I worked and it grew faster and I never bid the time, And every single Update pushed the speed another line. – But then they made the panther and it hated my old Mac, And though I bought a new one, my belief did not come back, Then came OSX on intel, my belief lost every race, Apple takes “trusted computing”, hits me squarely in the face. – Now my Mac here owns a Linux and Apple makes no gain, Since for my precious income I want freedom and no chain, So I switch on to a Linux, MacOSX I use the least, with those lovely little penguins I take midsummers feast. – Some days Im feeling sad and my parting brings me pain, But without freedom for their Users, all their genius is in vain, When I’d come back to Apple, I will tell them with delight, To get me back they must adhere to freedom and my rights, - They must adhere to freedom and to every Users right. - Arne Babenhauserheide ( ) - License: creative commons, attribution-sharealike-noncommercial: -
