Mac Vs. PC 06.02.2007

Just to fuel the neverending battle between Mac and PC, here's some stuff for the fire.

  • Laurie McGuinness | Mac PC Spoofs, nice spoofs on those pesky Mac ads, always showing the mac as some cool laid back piece of plastic person.
  • I hate Macs, a Comment is free article by Charlie Brooker at the Guardian. The article itself is very funny, but the best part is the comments. Every prejudism is represented, from all angles, being it mac or pc. We get the One-button mouse argument, the gaming argument, the best graphic platform argument, etc ad nauseam. Nothing new here, both mac and pc users makes complete asses of themselves, great entertainment. They even manage to confirm Godwin's law, several times in the comments. Way to go.

macs are better because YOU own one!

Jonas | web / 16:34 / 6th of february / 2007

And PCs are better for the same reason, if YOU own one!

That's a great beginning for an objective discussion anywhere (:

David Blangstrup | web / 16:35 / 6th of february / 2007

Yes! We did it!

Yeah, just close the thread, that's what Hitler would've done!

(Godwin's Law fulfilled in just 4 posts, personal record for me (: )

ALL YOUR MACS ARE BELONG TO US!

Er du stadigvæk sur over at du blev drillet med din pc i dk.edb.mac, David?

...and I thought the Mac was a PC!

Since when did 'PC' become synonymous with a 'PC running Microsoft Windows'? Some of us—-a minority, granted—-are fortunate to be running a different OS than Window on our PCs.

@Christan: Jeg tror stadig David er lidt mopset over at han blev drillet dengang (:

@Thomas: I agree, there seems to be some confusion still about the difference between a PC and a Mac, which is precisely none, as you point out. Some day, hopefully, I will be running another minority OS on my Mac (:
