but... OS X comes with a fair bit of GNU software pre-installed and runs a lot of linux apps, can download apps from the Internet just fine, and bittorrent works the same on it as on any other platform. Is this ***** tarded, or just on a bandwagon? There are a lot of reasons to bitch at apple, but all his arguments are ******* stupid.

He's retarded? Mac OS is a Unix standoff...plain and simple. You can take a free Unix shoot (BSD) and clone Mac in a couple of hours and guess what...FREE MAC OS. So you pay huge money for a free OS. You retarded ***** ?

Check out pear linux to see how close you can clone to Mac.

^^^^. MacPorts lets me install thousands of FOSS packages on my Mac, just as pacman, apt-get, yum, zypper, or what have you allows you to install FOSS packages on <Linux distro of choice>.

Remotely disable apps/media: Apple can remotely uninstall an app I installed from the App Store, or remove something I bought from iTunes. Just as MS can remove Win8 apps downloaded from the App Store. So yes, but it's not like "Oh we see you sideloaded GIMP. NOPE. UNINSTALLED."

No sharing music or books: Ok. I buy my music from Amazon/Google when I buy music. Otherwise, there are other means of retrieving it. Same for books.

No installing apps from the web: On the iPhone/iPad, yes? Same thing on MS surface RT. And similar on Android without rooting (potentially? not sure on this point).

-- It's cute how anyone can make a sign saying anything they want, and others will treat it as fact. :)

About the Android part - you can install whatever the hell you want from the web, all you need is a simple file manager app. You only need to root it if you want to use a custom build OS
