    That is a rather harsh punisment.
    I suppose any repeat offending will put him in line for an iMac?

    Surely that falls into the category of a cruel and inhuman punishment.

    I think the Geneva convention might have to say something about that. Cruel/Inhuman punishment and stripping away someone's dignity. They wouldn't even do that in the USA

    Yes, just think of the crime he'd have to commit to be inflicted with one of them.

    Killing the President... Nope
    Sodomizing the Constitution... Nope
    Burning down Congress... Nope

    You'd probably have to do all that down and take out the Pope before you even got close to being punished with a Mac

    Hardly, Linus Torvalds runs Linux on a G5 Power Mac

    I presume that is permissible in the privacy of his own home.
    Why not - the Linux will not be harmed, and the Power Mac can only improve from the experience (Still won't be any use though.)

    Amazing isn't it? A few Apples out there, and all computers have to be micro-chipped.

    Apparently the micro chip was Windows only.
