Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

//What about their customers, all those people who bought and keep buying their expensive stuff, are they all posers and cretins?//

No, but they're incredibly stupid.


Based on that logic all non-Apple customers are stupid for using Microsoft's 'expensive stuff', meaning Windows.

Just because Apple products are expensive doesn't mean only fools buy them. Some people's personal experience has shown them that spending more a product can sometimes provide a better experience.

This notion is logical only if one were a short-sighted Mactard lost in the RDF.

There are probably more non-Mac, non-Windows users than there are Mac users.
