    This, but mostly I hate PS3 and Mac fanboys, I voted for PS3s, because that's who I usually come across, but I suppose I do hate Mac fans more when I come across them, if you can change my vote that would be nice.

    Linux fanboys are clearly the type of people to learn entirely backward and difficult ways of life, so are the type to go to all extremes to build up a solid case for linux. Everybody else is just happy their PC works and as such do not go to such extents :)

    Id love to see a psychological profile of the kinds of people who use the differant OSes (from a certified psychiatric person, not just someone who fancies steriotyping plx :p).

    match meet petrol? :)

    The way I see it - mac fanboys mouth off about how much better mac products are. It's just a shame that I can honestly not think of one thing that a mac can do that a PC can't. I don't care if you own a mac, that's fine by me, just shut up about it. Seriously.

    I would love to have Nexxo profile me :D

    with way too much money...

    I voted PC, but PC as in al OSs... Every fanboy is unreasonable, wetter it be a Vista/XP, Mac or Linux one. I don't call myself a fanboy, I don't call Linux 'better then anything' or the 'best OS in the world', certainly not for everyone. It however is for me and I will defend it when someone is talking **** about it. However, when someone points to the flaws it still has, eg. gaming, I fully agree.

    Posting in an epic thread
    For all the hatred of mac fanboys, i'm surprised to see less posts with pictures(nice work tho veles)
    For me though, it's linux. When people are asking about driver issues with vista and someone says
    That's annoying.

    I think PC ones are the worst by a long shot. Rule out kids and their consoles as they arnt mature enough to construct arguments and blindly follow their friends.

    Mac fanboys: I have never come across one who tries to impose something then beats me down with arguments after I dont accept it (although I do have a mac so in a way I did accept it)

    PS3 / 360 fanboys: grouping together as both are beating their heads against opposite sides of the same wall, the consoles arent that dissimilar, ones an upgraded version of the other, the other has a more established catalogue of games.

    Wii fanboys: Yet to meet one, yet to meet anyone really who wont accept after playing for a while that its a fun alternative especially for pick up and play multiplayer with beers.

    Linux fanboys: While theres always the point that they are arguing against paying for something you can get for free, in my experience it has come down to going over the pro's and cons. They are almost always intelligent enough and have spent time on other systems to understand benefits of other systems.

    Bit-tech fanboys: LOL Bit is teh best site 3ver

    Which leaves PC ones (windows im assuming): Most people who use windows properly know of its flaws, they jokes about them and have enough experience with other systems to understand them. The fanboys however tend to have not really used a mac or linux becuase it wont play games, argue against points of other systems they have never tried. Always hold upgradability against other systems blind to the fact they have created a boxed jet in the corner which cost £2000, substantially more than a console that does exactly the same thing.

    You have a point, but for most I feel thats a minor point.

    No matter the OS or platform, I think we can all agree that rabid fanboys suck! Those Apple ad parodies are priceless btw.
