    Staying at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort, for a three-day Microsoft Conference (in my case, specifically for SharePoint Connections, but there's also ASP, Visual Studio and SQL Server conferences here at the same time). Surrounded by Microsoft fanboys...am I the only Mac guy here? I can feel them eyeballing my Mac as they walk by ;)

    They're just jealous. Don't worry yourself about it. ;)

    I did just see some dude walk by with an "SFbags" bag, and I know they're big on Mac stuff...but he didn't take his laptop out. Maybe I'm not the lone Mac dude ;)

    Try living in Redmond. This is a daily occurance if you take your computer to a local place. I swear people think I am Devil.

    Have your sound set to the loudest and start your computer when it's quiet in a room full of people. :D

    Just be prepared to pwn them.

    I've done stuff like connect to Windows domains and sign on with my Active Directory account. Just prepare things for any anti-Mac propoganda they may have. Then you can pwn them and make them look like total idiots if they rag you.

    I doubt they will though; they're just jealous of your Mac :) Look for other Mac users you can stick with.

    Can't believe that several years ago I considered that it would be great working for Micro$oft as a Graphic Designer.

    have friends who work through a temp agency. Seems M$ hires that way alot. One friend's co-workers bring in beer and wine all the time, even kegs now and again.
