Supplemental Question of the Day

I know there are exceptions. Many of the exceptions are on my friends
list, in fact.

Why is it that so many Mac users are so intent on telling anybody and
everybody in every way they can that they're using a Mac?


Because owning a MAC product is akin to driving a Porsche. It's a status symbol. If Apple is good at anything, it's marketing.

MACs started out as being for people in the creative industry because they run the graphics programs better. I'm not sure if that is true today, but my post-secondary education conditioned me to believe so. That is why I still use one. But hopefully I don't "boast" about it in the manner you describe.
Oh no, you're far from the sort of people I'm talking about. For you to be that way, you would have to start putting "Deb on Mac" as the name field in your e-mail address, then you'd have to put "Message composed on a Mac" in your signature, and you would have to go to great lengths to say "my Mac" at every conversational turn you can, and to top things off you would have to take as many pot shots at Windows as is humanly possible, and call it things like Trashbox PC. No, no, I wasn't refering to you at all in any way.
A MAC owner's favorite perfume is "Eau de Pretension". What can I say.
*GRIN* The Mac is a great machine. I know enough people who use and love it to understand that point.
