I think he eloquently makes the single point he wanted to make: Apple
did the traditional Apple thing (cool first, practical after) and
Microsoft did the traditional MS thing (practical first, cool after)

No, I'm not trying to start another holy war, just questioning the
disconnect Jason seems to see between 'works better' and 'looks like
Wal-Mart' (which I think could easily fit in the same sentence.)
