A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Many people still have mac laptops from before Apple swung so far over to the dark side. Back when they were just a company which created some closed source software and some open source software.
When did Apple go rotten?

Interesting. When do you reckon Apple swung over to the dark side? I think it was when the iPhone came out, which would have been in early 2007. (Actually, they'd been moving darkward for some time before that, but the iPhone developer rules made it starkly clear.)
I see many Mac notebooks at FOSS conferences that look younger than 3.5 years old.

And even then, it was somewhat possible to sort of justify it to yourself based on "it's just a phone, whatever, and you know, carriers are evil and stuff they had to, SRSLY!!". But now they've expanded the death grip onto a tablet device (and IMO likely will try to expand it further), I think it's a lot harder to make such a justification.
