Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Is Windows 7 leaning too much towards the Mac side of life? Many Microsoft bloggers are saying that it does, that Windows 7 is too much "form over function", something they accuse Apple of. While superficially they may have a point, the differences between Windows and Mac OS X are still glaringly obvious. Are a few changes to the taskbar enough to make Windows OS X-like? Bloggers like Mary-Jo Foley, Paul Thurrot, and others seem to think so.

Is it just me, or are there more Apple fanboy haters than Apple fanboys?

No, it's not just you.. I think so too. Assuming that is the case, it just goes to show you that the Mac fanboys end up doing more harm than good, which I would say is a pretty good reason why they should shut the f**k up already. The more they run their mouths, the more inclined I am NOT to own a Mac.

I don't quite follow that logic. There are very few fanboys, and an army of fanboy haters, and somehow that reflects badly on the product the fanboys like? I guess to me that reflects more on the fanboy haters, but to each their own.

Yeahhhhhh, no. Ever heard the term "persecution complex"?

Unless you mean "haters" in the Maclot sense, that is - AKA, anyone who doesn't spend every waking second figuratively tossing Steve Jobs' salad.

I'm haven't owned an Apple since my Apple ][+. But I'm doing an informal tally (because this is an interesting question), to see if I can put some actual numbers to it.

Glancing over your posting history, I'm marking you squarely in the "haters" category.
