I'm not the lesser bit concerned that I'm not using the best operating
system in the world. If the whole world eats Macs, it doesn't prevent
me from eating a good meal. If everybody uses Windows, I will have
problems getting streaming video.
This Mac comparison has spread for years to comfort know-nothing
geeks. (Cause, in their own way, geeks can be know-nothing too!)
Maybe it's time to stop this nonsense
