I used to program the Apple II. All you had to do was turn it on. You didn't have to buy a second, unrelated, $1000 computer
just to write programs for it, nor pay $100 per year to the company that makes it. You didn't have to submit to sudden,
arbitrary and anticompetitive censorship of the programs you could RUN ON YOUR OWN COMPUTER.

Apple may make many cool things, but lets not bullshit -- their devices are about neither creativity nor freedom -- they are
about consumption, censorship, and control.
