    I would agree with you Bogomip, but I'd also add that any other OS fanboys are just as bad. Just look at the thread about MS trying to get XP home on low cost lappys. Why can't people agree that the best OS/system/console is the one that works for them and try not to "force" others to share that point of view, irrespective of whether they have the same needs or not?

    Craziness...

    PC fanboys are the worst. Particularly when the Vista<>OSX argument stands on its hind legs and starts pawing for treats.

    Mac, then PS3. Linux fanboys are useful and we need them because Linux can be a real pain to use without expert help. Mac's are the worst though, eh Jamie?

    Mac fanboys are just about on par with the Linux zealots in terms of verbosity and snobbery about the superiority of their hardware and software. However, I think the Mac fans are worse - they'll take anything Steve Jobs puts in a white box and buy scores of them, regardless of price or actual value. Linux is usually free.

    Well we wouldn’t have to if the other operating systems weren’t so bad…

    EDIT: NetBSD’s not so bad.

    I went with mac... Fanboys in general just kinda stick up for a brand, be it PS3, 360, wii or whatever but the mac fanboys seem to enter into this elitist lifestyle and start wearing genius t-shirts and basically trying their hardest to mimic Steve Jobs. Just weird if you ask me...
