Yes it is a little unfair when you consider that threads that are biased against Microsoft are so hard to find on the internet these days.
The point I'm making is that Apple is basically excused from any wrongdoing that Microsoft would be crucified for. Now many years, a small upstart called Microsoft was excused from any wrongdoing that IBM would have been crucified for.
The same sort of rampant 'they can do no wrong' fanboyism as shown in the original article will lead to the same sort of monopoly in media distribution that we have in desktop operating systems. And by all accounts, no-one was happy with that.
