Windows is a litter box. Apple's is designed for cats. Linux is a box you
can designate to anything your mind requires.
Some people are willing to sit in a pile of poop as long as they can manage
to send an E-mail here and there... or run their iTooons and listen to a
pop track, then copy it to some iDevice.
People who have a grasp for PCs don't use proprietary operating systems,
which are a mere compromise. Ask NASDAQ.
