It's a shame for you teachers and DIYers who don't have an extra few grand lying around to spend on a new Mac when your old one breaks. Tell it to the lawyers I guess.
Ironically, I had written a note several months ago, after receiving a nasty email from someone, but I never posted it. You can read it here if you want.
Thanks for your kind words and moral support over the years.
