Steve is replaceable in the same way that any other person is replaceable. He has certain skills, aptitudes and viewpoints. In his case, there are not many people with the same balance. Many other people, no matter how powerful, would have caved into the RIAA. Steve just has a different viewpoint on how things "should" be. With a little luck, Apple will find someone who is as passionate about how things should be. With a little more luck, so will Microsoft. Then we could have a bit more competition (since even vista is no competition for os x) and make things better for everyone. Nick
