The author avers that the use of one vowel, out of all of them, before
the names of programs for the Mac, have made the order of my programs
almost as bad as the names that all start “The”. The author used to know
that these programs came from Apple, as part of a group of programs, but
now lots of vendors, some for PCs even, have these sorts of names.
Those who ponder whether that vowel has become overused need not worry.
The author has not used that vowel here.
