    Thought this was an interesting little piece from British 'National Treasure' and perennial Apple fan, Stephen Fry.

    He discusses a few aspects of technology and the internet, and its an amusing little insight into Mr Fry's history of owning and using Macs, and his disapproval of all things 'Windows'.

    I learnt that Stephen Fry was an Apple fan when I saw him on a TV programme buying a Mac Mini. Unfortunately, it turned out to be part of a spending spree which people with his depressive psychological condition are prone to. :(

    Still, go Apple :cool:

    Yeah, I can well believe that. According to wikipedia he has "three iMac Core Duos, two Mac minis, two MacBook Pros, a dual-processor Power Mac G5, a PowerBook G4 and an iMac G5". :eek:

    I believe he also owns the first (or second) Apple Macintosh ever bought into the UK.

    One word: legend

    He was the second, first was Douglas Adams. I'm sure Stephen Fry has written articles for various Mac mags down the years as well. Either way, possibly one of the coolest famous people to be an avid mac-user.

    Fry was also a fan and a friend of the late Vivian Stanshall. I'd say he's got many marks in his favor.
