I read last week in USA Today, Harrison Ford so describe his Star Wars character, Han Solo - the one that launched his monster film career.
Dumb maybe, but also beloved.
Reading about the brouhaha about Psystar last week, I had the same reaction. But that is the nature of industry disruptors. They may not have the same cachet as innovators - but they take equally large risks to help us consumers.
Our industry has a proud history of alternative products starting with Amdahl plug-compatibles. Third party software maintenance, replacement printer inks, SaaS alternatives to on-premise software and on and on. No reason the Mac cannot have close enough alternatives.
May the force be with disruptors, er rebels - a vital part of our industry.
