"There are over 600 million PCs in use today that are over five years old. This is really sad, it really is."Callous? Insulting PC users? He made a comment about how using old-ish hardware is sad. He didn't insult anyone. He didn't say you were sad for using a 5 year old computer. Big difference, words matter.
Nice try at spinning it away. PCs don't buy themselves, users buy PCs. PCs don't operate themselves, users operate PCs. People buy and use PCs. Schiller's statement was offensive on a number of levels as well as callous to many users. It completely was off, glaringly elitist and insensitive especially to those users who might be unable to afford a new machine.
