That's exactly right, which is why I don't (and can't) prohibit people
from running Remind under Mac OS X, even though I think Apple and (to
a lesser extent) Microsoft are dangerous for computer users' freedom.

I do, however, have the right to express my opinion, both in prose and
in code.

The GPL allows you to modify the build to remove the delay, so that's fine.
Consider the delay my choice of forum for protesting the disgusting actions
of Apple and (to a lesser extent) Microsoft.  If building Remind makes even
one Apple customer think seriously about the consequences of his or her
purchasing choices, then I'm happy.
