This very-experienced service tech explained to me that the repair was taking so long because the Mac OS has, much like the machines themselves, become so closed that it was difficult even for him to figure out what was going on. The Mac OS, he explained, has from about OS 10.5, and much more so with LION, been increasingly closed off and given a slick surface to make everything as simple and automatic as possible for people who s want to surf the net and play and up and download and do quick and simple edits to music and videos and digital images. A part of the problem may even be that I had changed or moved what used to be user-accessible files and routines (libraries) by adding paper and camera/lens profiles in an OS that can no longer tolerate even such things as the repeated movement of files.

"Very experienced", because he told you so? His comments suggests that he is just giving you the run around BS. Just like you could hear the sales guys at Best Buy do when they pretend to know something about computers.

You seemed to have some bad luck on hardware but the rest of your comments makes no sense or are outright wrong. sorry.
