Why is it always the Windows user who starts an argument?

    Anytime there's ever a picture of a mac or a meme about computers, the very first comment is usually always some Windows user sitting high and mighty on his throne telling people why his golden palace is the best.

    I've never seen this ego that people say mac users have.

    OP. Get off your high horse and put them pom poms down. Mac users can be just as bad as Windows users. I remember a certain user of three letters surrounded with asterisks who would use any argument possible to ram home that Apple were the best at everything.

    I do remember that guy. I wonder what we became of him?

    Also OP, I use Windows. Haven't started (not I am willing to) an argument centring around OS usage.

    Every platform has their share of zealots, some good for the platform some not so good.

    Window users are no more obnoxious then Mac users

    That's because there are no individual egos... there is just the borg collective.

    :D jk

    Maybe because some very vocal Mac users tend to wrap their identity in the computer they use.

    I 100% agree. I never see Apple users start things. I'm not even kidding either.

    The same thing goes at work, heaven forbid someone sees I have an iPhone. They always feel the need to try and tell me what Android device I should buy.

    I prefer my Macs, but I use Windows regularly as well. I wouldn't start a debate on the topic. (If someone else started one though, I would defend my side as well as possible! :cool:)
