That’s true for people working in an office. In my work, probably 97% of all the devices I ever see are Apple devices. And the ones I see are typically not owned by the people I share files with. I wrote the article partly because it’s an uncommon lifestyle, and I didn’t realize just how uncommon it is because I’m always down in the depths of it. It still doesn’t make me a captive, but whatever the lifestyle is, it’s definitely self-imposed. I’m not trying to break free of it; I’m more amused by it than anything else. But the ethical questions are real: how far would I go to keep supporting a company if I don’t agree with their business practices? Or maybe I should ask, how much would I sacrifice to stop supporting a company whose business practices bother me?

May the best argument win. And let us shake hands when it’s done.
