Apple is pushing heavily for stiff control over what happens inside its beautiful shells, knowing full well that most customers could care less about checking their cron jobs in a command-line window while watching a movie.

EPIC FAIL!

It's supposed to be "couldn't care less!"

I would prefer mine even more if my MBP with the Leopard copy I bought from the Apple Store would be as stable as my Hackintosh which I bought in the space of two hours and had to "tweak."

XCode is still buggy especially in regards to SCM (this drives me up a wall). Other then that it's not too bad of a system.
