They can afford to not do business with people who don't have JavaScript
enabled. They can even afford to do business only with Redmondware-running
folks.

Sony is actually arguably as evil as Microsoft, as far as
proprietary-toting userbaselockedness is concerned.

The elitist's role is to keep one's niche clean of mainstream crap, and to
constantly seek and open new niches, attempting to preserve pockets of
diversity.

Railing at mainstream vendors is fruitless, they're only doing their job:
making dineros. One's energy is better spent by finding said niches.
