That probably is because non-Kindle folks are concerned about Kindle dominating the market and want to prevent that from happening. It just feels a bit like some of the non-Kindle users feel that Amazon and Kindle are the evil empire and people should be discouraged from using Amazon at all costs. That bothers me a great deal.

Or maybe I am finally getting why Apple lovers are a bit defensive.
As a long time Apple "fangirl" this really made me giggle. I have spent lots of time defending Apple...

I have a Kobo because I want to read library books. But since I'm a huge Amazon customer, I was peeved that the Kindle didn't support library books and peeved with the 1984 type incidents. Does that mean I have stopped shopping at Amazon? Nope, not at all. Does this stop me from wanting to buy ebooks from Amazon? Nope, not at all. Can I afford to own both a Kobo & a Kindle? Well, maybe...but I wouldn't want to try to explain that to my husband.

As someone would wants to give Amazon my money, it is rather annoying when Kindle users become snide/snarky or get their panties in a bunch whenever someone doesn't bow to Amazon's greatness. I recognize a flaw in the model because I can no longer give them my money. If Kindle supported libraries, I would have overlooked a lot of other concerns and purchased a Kindle...
