Today the argument has become more philosophical or ontological. Are you a PC or a Mac and who is the more brainwashed. Where does the Mac user who loads Boot Camp to run Windows on their Mac stand? I would suggest its something to do with the Apple logo?

The battleground is now more tied. Based on market share and price PCs tend to be the winner while Macs remain the choice for designers, the more elite and the anti Microsoft community. There is no argument over the superb product design and build quality of the Mac. At an earlier point in time the Mac could claim better security but more recently that is no longer the case.
Get over yourself mate!

P.S. Ownership of one brand of mass produced plastic crap manufactured by slave labour in the Far East as opposed to another piece of mass produced plastic crap manufactured by slave labour in the Far East isn't something that troubles most adults

Just trying to clarify the ontological security and social ramifications of whether one is a PC or a Mac.

By the way the Mac is made out of aluminium.

It's been resolved. After the recent moderation in the DIY (oops I mean DoI) I am definately a Mac.

WTF??????

Has the ex Nigerian Minister of Defence come good on his promise to put the half million left over from buying an aircraft carrier in my account?.........am I now part of a cloud computing scam masterminded by the CIA?.......has some fearful virus decided to plant spyware amongst the coffee cups pencils,rubber stamps and other desktop detritus?.

Resisting the urge to pull the plug out and go for a bacon sandwich and waiting for some minutes I am rewarded with a message telling me I'm now running "Windows 10"

Could some clever b*****d please tell me what on earth this means?

When Windows jams up your machine like that, it's a bit of a pane.

While its downloading you could always go on safari in search of mountain lions...

I'll get my coat.
