    Geek, I think. Smiley

    Geeks won't satisfy with one OS only. They trend to install as many OS as they're able to use, in order to show their geekness. Wink

    I guess the sterotype about americans and sarcasm is true.

    Or didn't you realise Maddox is meant as humour? It is kind of obvious.

    When Mac zealots (not necessary the masse users) get upset when people provide examples of Macs not working (on usually stupid crap), it reminds me of people getting criticized and black-listed from Linux groups in the early 2000's when people would bring up Linux security flaws....

    "SHHH! We know it there's there... But we HAVE to win the war, by any means necessary... And you're not helping!".

    Of course, PCs and all computers have security flaws, exploited or not. Of course all manufactures ship bum computers. OS's have weird quirks, if not flaws in them..

    No one is perfect.. get over yourselves.

    It is an amusing website, I have nothing against Mac users personally, although I don't see myself using a Apple Mac. If there was no market for Apple Mac computers then there would be no company, I doubt however that it will become as popular as Microsoft for the operating system.

    The Mac operating system "should" just work because it only works on a few pieces of hardware, but as with all other operating systems, there are bound to be problems.

    Truly, http://maddox.xmission.com/ is a fun place to visit, but don't expect him to update very often.

    I think he even has a section where he tells people to shut the faq up about how often he posts Smiley

    He raises some amusing points, and the title followed by that picture is pretty funny, but I just can't stand maddox.

    Speaking of Darren, I'm still waiting for an explanation from him about that 'one troll to another' remark.

    Thing is - Darren isn't a zealot, he has been working on Windows for over 15 years, but I think - like me - he gets fed up with slamming Apple as if they were some sort of competition.  All too easy to slam Apple users without paying any attention to the Windows Zealots and apologists on C9.

    You yourself have been critical of Microsoft on occassion ..

    Cool I'm a zealot.  Better tell the guys at work not to buy £150k worth of MS dev tools I just recommend.  The is a difference with making factual statments about something you know, to just reading the hype and regurgitating it.
