Jailbreaking is akin to software piracy. It maintains the status quo instead of giving free and open
alternatives a fair go.
In response to this comment on osnews. Note that
I am not saying that jail breaking is piracy, certainly not, but that it creates the same result. Piracy is
why Photoshop has no competition. Piracy is why Korea and China have 99% IE usage. Jail-breaking will be why Apple
will never change their App Store policies.
Hacking the iPad will not create an open, viable alternative hardware and software platform.
