Daring Fireball: Plugging Leaks

Daring Fireball: Plugging Leaks: “You may disagree with Apple’s vigorous pursuit of leakers, but this is not a case of big bad Apple putting the screws to a little guy.”

Well, yes, it is. This is the kind of crap which reminds me that Apple is a big evil corporation like the rest, and which makes me appreciate Linux despite its blemishes and frustrations.

If you’ve been in the Linux world for a while and come to the Mac world, it’s nice to have all these things that Just Work, but the obsequious squealing with glee at the glorious secrets Steve is about to reveal to us all gets kind of nauseating. I don’t know who I can stand less, slavering Apple-haters, or spineless Apple-suckups.
