Macs crash. Spout indecipherable error codes. Choke severely on network drives that go awol. Render tons of amateur sites unreadable. Doesn't jive with most net banks. Some faults are its own, some it suffers by the hand of others. Basically, it's a computer. Not a goddess on a pedestal.
I should not cling to irrational sentiments of the father Jobs, the son of Unix, and the holy usability. Why do I do that? Why this need to attach divine inspiration to a box and a operating system? Do I need these heroic tales and glamourous myths to constantly convince myself?
I don't. Let the product speak for itself. My two macs are the best computers I've ever owned. But they're still computers. Flawed in many ways, but less than their predecessors. More credibility is to be had from recognizing mortality.
Repeat: Apple creates products, not a holy trinity. Apple contributes much innovation, not all of it. This is not something to disguise, regret, or apologies for.
Be proud instead of arrogantly zealous.
