Apple The editors of ResExcellence.com, a popular Macintosh website and longtime Mac enthusiasts, have switched to Linux. "I've been making my living as Mac-specific developer for several years now... I was a true Mac die-hard," stated Bryan, who also runs a Mac software company, on his blog, "but the Macintosh community, with its bad attitudes and diva-esque nature, rained on my parade. Sure there were other reasons why I switched. But that was the tipping point."

From what I can see, anyone or any group who tries to do something online gets bashed. I fear the honeymoon with the warm and caring Linux and Windows communities will be short.

Anyone who is embittered toward his/her operating system because of what other people say needs to get an appt. with a counselor asap.

Erm, sounded more like he is embittered with the community.
Are you part of that community by any chance, trying to twist the argument, so that it makes you look in some way superior...?

No, I am not. In the article somebody was quoted as saying that he was embittered toward his operating system because of others (the community). Did you read it? Do you realize how insane that is?
