Mac Guy Speaks Up
By Maria Popova
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
After last week’s rather scandalous exposé on the whole Mac vs. PC thing, we find out today that Mac OS market share has hit an all-time high at 8.28%, at the expense of Windows’ slow but steady fall from the 90.24% top.
Okay, no surprise, as we believe settling for the inferiority of a PC operating system is one of modern civilization’s most irrational and logic-devoid transgressions, right up there with Spandex, Hummers and George W.
But our quote of the week comes from our Swiss Mac brethren, specifically one CNN commenter unambiguously nicknamed “cynik”:
“A mac is a kitchen in your home, where you prepare your favourite delicacies.
A pc is a camp kitchen for a pack of grunts whose opinion doesn’t matter to their management.”
So much for neutrality.
