Since I have started using Mac's (last year) I recognize that using a Mac 
can cause a huge bias to develop in the minds of Mac users.  I also agree 
that Mac users can very easily become sheeple who call Steve their 
shepard.  I am positive that Steve would love to be in Bill's monopolistic 
position. =)  Even still, I am enjoying being a Mac user.  Did I mention 
the hardware is friggin sexy!
