Why Apple wins
No matter how proprietary Apple’s systems can be they win. Most people don’t mind that they can run better software on the hardware, like Opera for instance, they just love Apple products.

Why is it like that?
Apple create neat stuff, its as simple as that. Even the strongest Apple-hater loves the iPhone and iPad but they won’t admit it. Its like the vegetarians who sneak to McDonald’s for a snack.
And because people who love Apple create fun accessories, like this one for instance:
