Rather entertaining thoughts from a masochistic Windows user, but it makes me think - maybe every group (Win, Mac, *nix - all of them) is going about the whole "X is better because Y" game the wrong way and we're all just driving people mad rather than helping them out. Thoughts?

Well, at the risk of being Captain Obvious; Who cares? :lol:

Really, this debate is analogous to Coke v. Pepsi, Chevy v. Ford, Blond v. Brunette, Bud v. Coors. It's been going on so long, it's made me numb and indifferent.

The video did indeed suck. I made it through to about :07.

Ditto. Altho I didn't even check the video -- articles like that turn me off right away.

I've been a dedicated linux user for a decade and I admit to making snarky remarks about MS at times, but on the other hand, I don't preach to people about how they will have a better time if they give up windows and switch over, because they won't.

IMO, it's not any form of "competition". Linux is not windows, and vice versa.

Apple, since it makes it's own hardware, also seems like a different style of fruit. You could say they are all vehicles, but I do not think they are all sport utility vehicles, or road sedans, or whatever. When someone pulls up to a Barracuda in a maxed out F-150, who will win what contest?
