As a long-time Apple user (fanboy? who, me?) I appreciate his sense of history and the evolutionary road the company and the gear has been through. Nothing’s perfect but I like the way he says:
“I’ve always been drawn to their computers but again – and I can only speak from my own personality; it just makes sense this way: I feel that people who don’t get it, who aren’t huge fans of Apple stuff, see people as ‘Apple fans’, but I just see it as ‘fans of a certain kind of attention to detail‘.
Yeah, it’s that, and an aesthetic, a certain tastefulness. MS has no taste.
