Watching the first 2 matrix movies in expectation of Revolutions release in just over two weeks, I realized something... The Machines are like Windows, and Zion is like the Macintosh world. The Machines are much larger, evil (wielding humanity for their own gain), and easily hacked. The city of Zion is small, the last refugee of humanity, and the Machines are completely unable to hack it even with great resources at their disposal because the system is built stable from the ground up, while the machines have one layer piled upon another dating back to the original AI system developed by humans. Any other similarities?
