I think that's a mistake.  If you (or anyone, but you're a good
example for the moment) have to lapse to dogma to handle a question,
then you're really not answering.  You should be re-evaluating your
opinions as time goes on and not reverting to the party line.  I'll
grant that your reasons for not liking OSX are probably just as valid
now as they were two months ago, but will they still be valid in a
year?  In two years?
