I don't know. Mac users were all over that thing bumping it up with single votes because we like Steve and MacRumors linked to it.... giving all the macrumors readers a chance to vote for our favorite CEOs. I personally voted for Steve. This is probably what "GK from Rhode Island" (was that it?) was getting at - that Mac users support their corporation. Thus, he, being d4 lE37 h4X0r D0oD d47 h3 wUz, had a tissy fit, pooped his pants, and started using bots. Mac users had a tissy fit, pooped their pants, and started using bots. The Register took a note from The New York Times and the Washington Post (for more examples, look at 90% of the media), spread their lies, and it made macBytes. Frankly, the reactions on both parts were pretty stupid.

Cracks me up!

"With OS X becoming more and more like Windows everyday."

Wow. And they call us delusional.

I know uber-geeks use Linux... but I don't think Apple has anything to worry about. The Register always has this "we use linux and we're above the fray" attitude... but then they go and post some window psycho's babbling.

Also posted scripts to thumbs up or thumbs down Ballmer too.
