I'm a long-time lurker, and recent poster to AppleInsider. But it's comments like these that make me angry and upset. Why must people be so elitist and pig-headed with regards to a choice in operating systems? Who cares if someone wants to use Windows? Is it REALLY that much of a hindrance to you?
Jesus, you'd think that Microsoft killed your first born or something. I don't seem to see many PC-centric sites/forum users bashing Apple or its operating system (at least not like back in the good 'old days
), but I see that Windows hate is alive and well here... just for the sake of being mean-spirited.
I personally use Windows Vista on my desktop, Windows XP on my Eee PC notebook, and I have an iPod touch which has become a tool that I can't live without. But all three systems perform how I expect them to, and all get the job done wonderfully.
After purchasing my iPod touch, I have the inclination to purchase a Mac system, but the prices for a new system are a bit beyond what I want to pay right now.
That being said, why can't we all get along? Why does everything that mentions Microsoft have to turn into a bitchfest with flames thrown left and right? Grow up, please.
