Oh,the follies of this world

How could I know that this troll created bait thread should turn into a classic PC vs Mac war ...

What is really underlying all this mess is that consumers and corporations alike have accepted to step into the digital world without demanding that products adhere to open standards.

If I had at the outset understood that to maintain my digital Olympus cameras I need to keep one PC running proprietary Windows OS solely for this purpose, I probably wouldn't have gotten into Olympus camera systems again, (OM was my first). All my other PCs have for the last 15 years run on open standard and free (as in both free beer and free speech) Linux OS with many splendid open source image programs like RawTherapy, darktable, digiKam and Gimp.
