Jeez. Apple has a _tiny_percentage_ of the personal computer market, and
only a _miniscule_sliver_ of that small number of Mac owners are also FM
users. 

It seems rather a stretch, therefore, to claim that "many people" can
program FM with AppleScript, while dismissing FrameScript, FrameAC, and
other solutions; to insist that it can be done "painlessly... only on a
Mac"; and to crow that "if you have a Mac, you're in luck. If not, then
I don't have a good answer for you."   

Macs seem like really nice machines to me, but I've developed something
of a negative attitude toward them, and I blame all the arrogant, smugly
superior, "one true way" Mac-heads (who, more often than not, aren't
nearly as knowledgeable as they believe).
