I know the whole "I'll agree with you then co-opt your argument and spin it" hash Sir, save it.

MS sees the Apple model like you just said- get people on a proprietary platform, convince them there is no good alternative then juice them. It's the new business model- act like a government. If it works long term then welcome to a new dark age.

I never said I'd go with Android. I am simply pointing out that there will always be alternatives in a market that has any freedom at all. That businesses that use artificial restrictions and anti-competitive practices as market tactics don't deserve my business and I don't have to give it to them.

Don't believe me? I'm a year-old cable cutter and loving it. I'm getting more value for less money with DSL, a Roku and a Mohu antenna than I ever could with the one cable company that is allowed to operate here. Ditching MS would be just another step for me.

Take care Sir.
