Rather than re-write what I've written too many times, I'll just repost it:
Okay okay, let's all settle down.
This is the Apple forum and for whatever reasons, PC fans like to come in here from time to time to crap all over Apple. God knows why we're not allowed to be excited about our platform of choice, but there you have it. PC fans get a stiffy every time a new CPU fan comes out, but we're not allowed to be excited about some innovations that Apple comes up with.
This is the price of admission to being a Mac fan. I faced up to that a long time ago and I have come to accept it. Occasionally, it gets out of hand and I have to stop a thread in it's tracks, but most of the time, the idiocy is self evident and people point at the troll and laugh. I am sure enough of my decision to use a Mac that I'm not all that concerned with someone who's manliness is defined by his computer. By the way, this is a generalization, I am not calling anyone a troll here.
What I have said in the past remains true: Computer platform choices are simply a matter of preference. What is important to one computer user is not important to another. A feature that makes a gamer foam at the mouth may not mean a thing to someone who wants a computer that is elegant and easy to use. Operating Systems are the same way. I can't stand hand-tweaking every bit of my OS, but Linux fan boys LOVE it. Just a matter of priorities and preferences.
Everybody relax, grab a cold one, and move on. Preferences are by definition, very personal. Even when Apple's hardware was totally outclassed by intel and AMD (other than the diehard fanbois, most Mac fans will admit this), there were people that preferred the OS and user experience to whatever else was available. That user experience was more important to them than sheer speed.
People have different sets of priorities. They have different sets of expectations. They have different sets of aesthetic preferences. One size, no matter how big, does not fit all. Nor should there be any desire for this to happen.
We all win when companies have to compete for our dollars. We lose when we only have one company to choose from. It really is that simple.
