reading all these comments of poor people, trying to argue as much as they can against "Jobs"
Are you sure we are reading the same thread? Yeah we poked fun at Jobs, Gates, Al Gore, the Ewoks and even ourselves. However the major thrust of this thread has been to look at the origins of the dock.
Apple is the only company, that for years took good care about the QUALITY of their products. I have nothing against SD, but ObjectDock is kinda crap as compared to Apples's dock. I could count hundreds of OD crashes, and not even one crash of Mac OS for years
The ignorance of that statement doesn't even deserve a response. Do you actually believe that Apple is the only company that puts out a quality product? Machine stability in a small controlled set of hardware and software, should not be confused with quality. "Mac" users and the company itself ("I'm a Mac and I'm a PC") take great pride in the fact that they are somehow better than a PC. When for all intents and purposes they are one. The term "PC" has its roots in "IBM compatible PC". It refers more to the Intel hardware than the MS operating system. So in point of fact the Mac is nothing more than a subset of the PC since they have switched to Intel Hardware. The only reason there is still a Mac is the software EULA that won't let anyone run the Mac OS that doesn't purchase the hardware from Apple. The Mac OS would fall apart if it had to try and be compatible with the entire marketplace. Like Stardock, MS, and Linux.

Again you miss the point of the article and attack. No one here has aggressively claimed that Apple products are crap, there are lots of talented people working at Apple.
The article is about Mac users claiming that all things stem from Mac. It refutes this idea, in an informed way. Tracing the history of the Dock and its development over the last thirty years.
People have been expressing their personal preferences, yours is obviously Mac. Fine, but quit throwing mud. K?
