Nope. Doesn't have anything to do with Bill Gates directly or

it's all about software. A Machead is a person who uses the Mac OS and
Microsoft Windows and who knows that one of them is a far superior to
the other.

What about the people who despise Bill Gates for known and stated
reasons?  ;-)

But seriously, I know plenty of Mac enthusiasts who don't care about Mr.
Gates one way or another and quite a few Windows enthusiasts who can't
stand him.

It's really too bad personalities enter into it.  From my perspective,
having started on computers in 1958, both Jobs and Gates get an A+ for
moving the machines into our homes.  I credit Gates with having the wisdom
to put MSDOS on clones, thereby making the PC affordable to millions, if not
a billion people.  I credit Jobs for producing quality hardware and software
and doing such a bang-up job on graphics.

To those who begrudge Gates for the monopoly achieved by giving people
precisely what they wanted, I ask that they look at what he is doing with
the derived wealth.  Had Jobs sacrificed performance for price early-on, one
can only wonder what he would have done with those billions.

I'd say it's someone who likes the Mac OS.  The new Intel Macs are no
different from a user standpoint than the PowerPC Macs they're
replacing, unless you desperately need to run old software.
