I've discovered that I don't really like people who are obsessive about the operating systems they have. Nearly all of them bay for Bill Gates blood and regard themselves as the gods of the computer world. How to make them understand...it doesn't matter. Bill Gates was a fabulous marketeer and understood faster than most people that the future was in software. Then he took over. Not his fault if his products are marginally dysfunctional. Sheesh. At least they're usable, and for most people....that's enough. So let's leave it at that. It's not that important. On the other hand, I am going to see Eisley tonight and am super happy about that.

Crème de la crème of these people are Lunix nerds. I had one at TAC explain in detail why they were the best OS. They are kind of interesting, since they are completely open-source, so anyone can modify the operating system, but that seems like a bit of a headache to me...

you are sooo right. my biggest beef is not with mac users, but lunix users. they are completely obsessed with their product.

on the other hand, it's free...which is a major draw for starving poets. not that I object to Gates trying to make a buck, but now that he's got several dozen billion of those...
