I think that you have to be something of an independent thinker to buy a Mac, if only to sweep aside the prevalent doctrine that abandoning Windows leads to a lack of 'proper' apps, weird file formats and general incompatibility with the MS-dominated world.

One time I was talking with someone about getting a Mac and then they said they just didn't feel trendy enough. No what Mac users are, in reality, are smart consumers that enjoy a virus free system and simply reliable computers.


You got that right.

Actually, my teeth are grey (the ones I have left), I drink turpentine and I only go to Starbucks when I'm sober. Wink

Ever see the movie Best In Show? The uptight yuppie "Busy Bee" couple said that they met at a Mac user's group. I though it was funny how they threw that little factoid into the movie just to add to the stereotype.

Here's the video.

What about the bear in a bee costume? That's another good scene.
