When I first came here I was still a big Windows user, and beside the obvious irritations of the platform sometimes, I still liked it and used it all he time (as well as my Mac). But, when I started posting in this forum I found myself dragged in to the all singing all dancing Macs are the greatest, PC's BSOD all the time chanting gang. Basically I was posting what I thought people would want to hear, or indeed expect to hear on a Mac forum, basically trying to fit in. As time has gone by I've moved further and further away from that. I have no time to care what people think about my view, I don't think Steve Jobs is God and his products his jesus like spawn, I do like PC's, and Windows XP is a good OS. Difference is, now I will say this on here, I have been here long enough that I'm not "afraid" of the mac zealots jumping on me for being a trolling wintel fanboy. So, did you or do you alter your views to that which you think MacRumors members would be more excepting of? Has this changed over time? Newbies, do you feel a need to "conform" to become a "valued" member here (especially now there are so many members and it's so busy here). Good god, that was actually quite a serious ramble for me!
