MS does not have a monopoly, but Apple's actions are certainly monopolistic. Imagine the hue and cry if you could only buy software from MS to run on a PC.

Why make it a personal attack?
Because Jobs IS Apple - so much so that the company went to great lengths to hid Jobs's cancer from its own stockholders. He's the face of Apple in ways Bill Gates is not for MS. Do you really believe the company makes any policy that Jobs does not sign off on?

But my question isn't why Jobs would do this - it's why so many people here think it's A-OK for Apple to do something they'd be screaming about if Microsoft did it.

So far, the answer seems to be 'because they're not Microsoft' which makes no sense.
