I'm angry with the administrators of the Apple board. In my first post I wrote something like:

"Me too.

And so does a lot of other people: http://www.petitiononline.com/BCM4301/petition.html (if you look at the signatures, you'll see that there's a lot of AE users)"

This was changed to:

"Me too.

And so does a lot of other people."

Why would they want to do that? :roll:

I sent apple a flurry of feedback forms about

  1. Airport Extreme for Linux
  2. iBook's lack of audio in
  3. 12" iBook's crappy speakers
  4. iBook's keyboard (capslock, arrow keys, no dvorak option)


I highly suggest you all do the same.

Apple is not interested at all in Linux. They once created Mk Linux in order to get experience with Mach in a UNIX environment. And they dumped it once it had fulfilled that task. That's alll there is to say about this matter.
