    Its:

    Never ask a man what computer he uses. If it's a Mac, he'll tell you. If it's not, why embarrass him? - Tom Clancy

    Does anybody know the context for that quote? Was it in an interview (with whom?), in some informal writing?

    Cheers,

    I couldn't find the context of that quote, but I found another nice one (though it is a bit outdated) on www.personal.umich.edu/~tinayee/quotes.html:

    "Saying Windows 95 is equal to Macintosh is like finding a potato that looks like Jesus and believing you've witnessed the second coming."
    - Guy Kawasaki

    Edit: Oops, got the link wrong!

    More and more people talk to me because of my sig. Seems I made a good choice.

    I once found it somewhere on the Internet, can’t remember where, but when you google for it, you’ll have lots of hits.

    Apparently the Clancy himself uses it as a signature on the end of his e-mails. As he has never sent me a mail I can not personally verify this. But I do know he is mad for the Mac, I did read an article (link escapes me) where for a couple of thousand words he oozed clinical affection for the format.
