OSNews, Generic OSes Over the years, we've occasionally run an "Ask OSNews" feature, wherein a reader asks us a question and we answer it publicly. Lately I've really been enjoying Slate's Dear Prudence advice column and the ever-interesting Straight Dope, and I thought we should see if we can get more OSNews readers to submit questions, and turn Ask OSNews into a more-regular thing. If your question falls outside of our domain expertise, we'll try to track down an expert to help out. And of course, our responses will always be supplemented by further advice from OSNews readers in the comments. Questions are welcome on any topic ranging from OSes and computing to science and geek culture. Contact us with your questions. (Please include "Ask OSNews" in the subject). Today's question is from a young student in Hungary who's seduced by the faraway siren song of Apple's marketing and wonders, "should I switch?"

You were presenting opinion as fact - that is what I object to. You can have what ever opinion you want, the moment you start declaring your opinion as fact - just as you did, you lose all credibility.

IMHO, I don't see how my post is different from others in tone in this thread? Isn't posting in a forum/comment section not by default an opinion? Or should I start all my sentences with "In my humble opinion"?

...You also failed to enter into any sort of meaningful dialogue - are you here to enter into a conversation

Note, I was a parent poster, as such there is little to react on except the original article. Where other people reacted on my post, you chose to quote me and tell me that I should stop lying and accused me of being a troll and a one-time poster. When I replied, you tell me I don't enter in meaningful conversation.

...or do you expect a monologue where you can do a sermon on the mound with all those present merely bobbing their head in agreement?

No not really, maybe some reactions why Apple is a friendly company or some other experience on the ergonomics.

On what do you have a different view? I gave examples why I have my opinion for all except the Clan of Mac.
