My way of looking at it is that I enjoy freedom to do things my way, use
whatever hardware I want to use, and never be hostage to a company that can
suddenly pull the plug on me. Mac is even more restrictive than Windows in
some respects, and that is why I started moving to Linux.

For me, open source means free, and not necessarily in the financial sense
of the word.

Though free software is not a problem.<g>
