Same thing. When small companies are bought by bigger ones, the small company (and the noble ideals that made it) are dead, done, dusted, kaput. Check out the countless other examples of such acquisitions and you'll see this pattern over and over again. Small companies and project work and are close to the user; the big ones work and are close to money. Period. When one gets big, the passion is lost, the motivation is altered, and he knows he can get away with almost anything, including defying the user.

Imagine Rainmeter being bought by one of these big companies. What do you think it will happen with the nice project, nice team, nice forum, nice community? If you can't see how such things end up, well, I'm really sorry, but the reality is there in front of your eyes, proven time and time again...
Yeah, but Apple is different, blah blah blah... Nope, don't think so - it's just prettier than others, that's all. :uhuh:
