    If given a choice would you choose the red pill (Apple) or the blue pill (Windows)?

    All your life, you are raised to believe in a world that is run by Windows. A world with infinite crashes and errors. A world so banal and benign of creativity and emotion. A world that is stolen. You have grown to accept this world as the truth, but you know somewhere deep in your heart, "a splinter in your mind," that somehow there is something out there. Something more to the bleak reality that we see everyday when we sit down on our desk and look at our computer.

    Then one day you see a man with a vision. A vision unlike any other has seen before. You are told to follow the white apple, all the way down to it's core. You are exposed to brief pictures of the original iMac, Powermac G4, iBook, G4 iMac, iPod, and then the G4 Powerbook. Your tongue drops, and your mind is free.

    There are oppositions, software and hardware makers refuse to acknowledge your system. But you fight on, you believe in the cause, the struggle, the battle for freedom.

    You are told countlessly that your savior is dead. And each time he comes back stronger and better than before. Each time The Gate claims victory and total domination, the savior fights back to unleash a new weapon.

    The world is not what it seems. You are given a choice.

    If you take the red pill, you will know the truth. And the truth has a hefty price to pay. Or you can choose the blue pill, and live in anonymity and obscurity in a world of clones, and stale propriety. Perhaps a little happier, perhaps a little secure, happy in their own little corner of the world, swallowing the menuscia that comes their way.

    You have a choice.

    Of course, some people out there actually take both pills...;)

    Actually, with XP and Aqua, I think they're both blue pills. Although one of the pills looks distinctively more Fisher Price than the other.

    What is "menuscia"? Is it "minutiae"?

    I agree that there's more innovation with the red-pill group, but if we wanted unadulterated newness we would have to get a Xerox Star or Alto... or a Newton.
