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.

I'd say your suspicians are spot on, it most certainly applies more broadly... to every product/zealot combination, in fact. I'll be honest, on most tech sights I see more Linux fanboys than any other type at the moment, but no doubt that will change in time to some other set of zealots. I guess the anti-fanboys annoy me more than the actual fanboys do. At least the fanboys are advocating something, no matter how annoying they get, the others are usually just dissing the fanboys and adding nothing productive at all.

For the most part they are one and the same though. Fanboys of Apple are Anti-Fanboys of Microsoft and vice-versa etc.

So they're both as infuriating as each other, just tackling the same subject from opposing sides generally without taking any interest in what the other party has to say.
