See for yourself:


Haven't you hung around these type of people before? The more obscure a product and the less people use it, the cooler you are. Example:

circa 1998:

Bob: I use Windows.

Bart: *nose in the air* Hmm. I hope you enjoy your indentured servitude, Gatesophile. I bet you can't even compile a kernel. Hell, my *mom* uses Windows.

circa 2002:

Bob: Linux really is great, I think I'm giving up Windows for sure.

Bart: *nose in the air* Hmm. Linux is all right, but monolithic kernels are so .. 1998. Besides everyone knows the GPL is evil. Personally I'm using Mac OS X on my iBook. I bet you don't even know how to unload a kernel extension. Hell, my *wife* uses Linux.

circa 2005:

Bob: Wow, you're right Mac OS X Bobcat 10.5 is awesome, I love how my PowerBook's desktop automatically transfers to my iPad whenever I unroll it.

Bart: *nose in the air* Mac OS X? Please, it hit its peak at 5% market penetration. Now it's just another piece of closed source software. Personally, I use GNU/HURD. Hell, my *son* uses Mac OS X.

Bob: I bet you use Opera don't you?

Bart: I certainly do. Version 10.0 finally supports CSS style sheets. I bet you don't even know what that is, trendmonkey.


Found that rather funny and thought you'd all like to read it. The thread is here (http://slashdot.org/articles/03/05/19/2213237.shtml?tid=185); this post is somewhere at three quarters from the top. The rest is not really interesting. At least, from what I hastily read.

Opera is soooooo slow on a Mac; unusable. At least version 6 is. On a PC it might be okay, but on our platform it's ... oh wait ... is that Moto's fault?

Yeah, let's blame Motorola!
