    MACs? I use them every day. In fact billions of people rely on MACs to go about their business. Even Microsoft has tens of thousands of MACs.

    Sorry, I don't mean to seem rude or anything, it's just that I saw MAC in all caps and thought Media Access Control, and it just struck me as funny.

    I only know one person who bought a Mac, and I think she did it accidently because she let the dimwit at the computer store choose a high comission item for her. She ended up taking it back after she found out that she would need to buy new copies of all her PC software, and that some of the software had no Mac equivalent.

    I'd check your numbers.

    I know about 4 people who own macs. I know about 100+ who use PCs (both linux and windows). This is about what the market is really. Apple owns about 4%. That's where its going to sit for a while.
