Anti-Apple Anger

Marco Arment has put up the full article I quoted in part back in November:

Where Apple says “You can’t do that because we think that would suck,” Microsoft and Android usually say, “You can do whatever you want, even if it sucks.” They give users enough rope with which to hang themselves, even when that results in asphyxiation, and it’s up to the users to tolerate or fix any resulting problems themselves. Google and Microsoft are platform libertarians: they don’t kick away the chair, but you have to cut yourself down.

Wonderfully said.
