It must be great to be able to make such confident assertions
about a machine that you've never seen.

As far as Apple are concerned, it is just fine. (Yes, they have
looked at it; more than once.)
But, even if it worked properly, what I'd think is pretty much

That's a matter of opinion. I much prefer using real BSD with
the usual applications. I have both available to me, all day
every day, and I know perfectly well which I prefer.
You may have other preferences, but they don't cut any ice with

Anyway, everybody knows what I think of Apple, Apple hardware,
Apple software and Apple service. I won't say any more about it.
