For my purposes as an engineering undergraduate; Windows is respectable (& generally necessary), Linux is admirable (& often useful), OS X is enjoyable (& requires no further justification, although plenty could be given)!

If it has an impact on sales, the standard boilerplate BS of "We have listened to our customers and..." will be issued. Just in principle, I wouldn't use an MS product if it was on the dollar shelf at WallyWorld, but in this case, a product that bricks itself if it doesn't see an Internet connection would be useless to me.

Apple is bad enough with their No Physical Media standard. To an engineer in Silicon Valley with a zillion megabit port to his/her desktop, it might sound like a good idea, but for someone struggling in the rural areas (heck, or even lots of parts of town) with a "Sometimes on" 1mb connection, it sucks.

I suspect that many if not most of the techies at both Apple and MS grew up in high end neighborhoods and just assume that anyone who wants high speed broadband, just picks up the phone and orders it. I wish that were so.

I guess they think if you can afford a Xbox One you can afford a decent internet connection? I pay a heck of a lot for my internet connection and it's still slow to me. >_<"

Well, I pay about 72 bucks for a nominal 1mb terrestrial wireless. And I was happy to finally get it, since all that was available from the 1980's to about 3 years ago was an ATT locked down half speed dialup - 26k max. I would pay more - much more - for a decent 4mb broadband, but in this very rural area, it ain't even a possibility. No other options available.

My Dad lived in an apartment in Austin and only used his desktop for email and surfing the golf news. He paid about fifteen bucks/month and usually got a speedtest.net reading of about 16mb.

Sigh...
