You must have bought too many arguments this week because you are the one
who said "*no* additional software is needed on a mac" where I agreed with
you and never said otherwise.

Except it's the canonical definition of bloatware and it doesn't even work
in the real world.

You play your silly child-like games trying to make a Pinta versus
Paint.NET thread into an iOS versus Android fiasco.

On Android, you just plug in the phone. That's it.
You slide files back and forth. That's it.
It just works. 
There's zero need for non-native software on either the phone or the
computer.

You can claim that the iTunes abomination is "better" but you can't claim
that it works in the real world, nor that iTunes isn't the canonical
example of bloatware.
