Yes, you're right. I think that we all choose the best tool for the
job, it's just that our criteria for such is different.

So if my criteria for a music player that I want the coolest, easiest
to use, then maybe the choice is the iPod.
If my criteria for a music player is that I want to be able to use any
platform and free lossless audio file formats, then iPod doesn't suit.

For me, the best tool for the job is often one that results in
long-term freedom. I can see how, if that's not your focus, one might
be happy to use Microsoft Office, or Exchange, or iPods, or anything

Thanks to everyone for contributing to this conversation, it's really
helped me sort out a few things in my mind.
