    And you would love them even differently if for the last ten years Ramen was all you had to eat.

    if your doing it on a professional level its not gonna be free generally as companies like having support for they're software and some of the nicer software is still proprietary

    It isn't simply that Google's stock price is superior to that of Apple's that I base my assertions of superiority of product in favor of Google's product line. But, a greater stock price means more working capital to invest in product design and implementation. That's good news.

    I agree with your pseudo-mathematical, philosophical equations there lol

    I like both OS, but I think iOS is better then Android. (Don't hate, appreciate!)

    My problem is that it's just far too locked. It's like being a fascist country where the only way to make yourself free is by illegal means.

    That doesn't address the principle. That's a frowned upon behavior that individuals are forced into by unscrupulous business practices.

    Exactly, thus the only way to make yourself free is by illegal means.

    With no real reasoning attached to this discernment.

    Putting it in simple words - it's like Windows :D

    You could say that. You could also say that Apple is far more "fascist" than Microsoft ever could have hoped to be.

    Steam:

    I'm not so sure about iOS being more "fascists" than Microsoft.
    TBH, I don't really give a fuck about whether OS is proprietary or not. What pisses me off about Apple products is that they are pathetically overpriced. It's like paying almost 20-30% more just for fucking apple's logo on the back of your device and a chance to tell your friends "I have fucking iPhone, and you - don't. You are losers!"

    Steam:

    I don't know how an operating system can be fascist, which is why I noted that the fascists were the creators of the operating system (Apple). I agree with you on the pricing. They are less suited to functionality and more suited to socioeconomic status symbols. I do contend, however, that Apple's use of authority to regulate content and features is extremely authoritarian.
