Daringly Funny

From Daring Fireball about the differences between mac and pc users in relation to some high profile open source people who announced they are moving from the mac to something open source. First of all, as if we couldn’t predict that* happening, but i digress. Here’s the funny bit:

“Hence the difficult situation faced by small-minded Windows users who do not get the appeal of the Mac; to admit that Mac users’ strong preferences are reasonable would be to admit that they (the Windows users) are unable to perceive something that Mac users can. That to concede that Mac users are reasonable wouldn’t just imply that Mac OS X is in at least certain ways much better than Windows, but that Mac users in certain ways have a more refined sense of taste than Windows users, which in turn cuts way too close to implying that in certain ways Mac users are smarter, which is where things turn ugly because those certain ways are, to Mac users, the ways that really matter, and any chance at reasonable discourse evaporates because both sides feel deeply insulted by the other.”
