If Apple goes towards a complete union of iOS and OSX, I will check it out. If I don't like it, I will either move to another platform, or stick with OSX for a long, long time. It's possible. Hardware has surpassed people's uses for some time now... Why do people need new hardware to watch videos, type documents, and browse the web when hardware from five years ago could do it. You know?

There is a small yet dedicated group of people that use OS 9 as their main OS, I could see the same for OSX.

Oh and you don't get DRM. Another big plus.

Music is definately not an area that is lacking for the "Facebook + music playing" crowd under Linux.
What? Amarok's interface looks and uses like Michael Bay's spunk on a wet cookie. I now run Clementine because it has one of the best interfaces for working with lots of music. It's no Foobar2000 though.

I was talking about music creation tools. I've been running Linux since 1995, so I'm aware of the file format support, etc.
