Almost everybody. It's the nature of modern over-reaching software licenses.
Thanks for everyone’s responses. All points well taken.
Just to clarify my perhaps terse post, I have no problem with any manufacturer imposing reasonable restrictions when it comes to possible warranty claims - you modify it, you lose your right to claim compensation for any damage that modification causes. Yep.
My beef was/is that the manufacturer would actively prevent you in the first place from modifying your product.
Also, I do not have any ill givings toward the Apple company. They make tons of money so they must be doing something right! Good for them. But it seems that for reasons including the above I am not part of their target market. OK, no problem.
Oh, I apologize if anyone took my “only an idiot would...” comment personally. It was not intended as such.
