No iPhone X for Me, Thank You Very Much

The last time I used anything made by Apple (one of the early Macintosh models) back in April, 1994 — the “Eject” command (Cmd-E) didn’t work after four or five tries, so I pulled my 3.5-inch floppy disk out of the drive with a Leatherman multitool. Amazingly, the disk still worked fine when I tried it at home on a PC-style desktop.

Add that to the fact that Apple keeps a lock on what software MacOS will run that makes Windows look like a FOSS free-for-all. I wouldn’t be surprised if I heard that iOS is similarly locked up.
