Oh no! Now my friends might not only find out that I am hanging out with
liberals, but that I am hanging out with Macheads! My reputation is shot.

Oh well. You guys are worth it.

So you might as well buy a Mac and vote Green.  You won't even have to
give up your Windows software; the new Macs can run them very well.

Yeah, but if you are going to run Windows, why bother with a Mac?

There is some good software available for Windows that is not available
for the Mac. If you're mainly a Windows guy you could compile a more
complete list than I can. Autocad is an important app that comes to
mind, and I don't mean to suggest that's the only one.

Soundtrack, /Microsoft/ /Entourage/ , (yes, Virginia, MS makes an
e-mail client for the Mac OS that is better than anything it makes for
Windows,) and I don't mean to suggest those are the only ones.

I think the point is that if you want to run all those great Windows
apps /and/ all of the great Mac apps /and/ the zillion tons of
Linux/Unix apps, and run them all natively, and run them all on one
hardware platform, and run a whole bunch of them simultaneously, a
consensus is arising (among pro-level Windows users in particular) that
Macintosh hardware is the best solution yet devised.

I did my best to keep it non-partisan, without harping on the fact that
Mac OS X has /never/ been penetrated in spite of millions of
sophisticated attempts.

I guess that I haven't really found a need for apps that I can't get on
Windows or Linux. I had no intention of flaming anyone and I hope no one
took it that way.
