This is a good observation, which at the risk of fanning flames, applies
to a broader arena than just Linux v. Windows.
The other day I had lunch at Schlotzky's and was doing a little surfing
on one of the iMacs that they provide. A guy sitting next to me asked me
for the time, and after showing him my watch, pointed out that it was
right there in the upper right hand corner of his screen. He said
"hmmpf, it's on the bottom on my computer, I haven't used Macs much,
but this isn't bad."
I'm pretty much eclectic when it comes to computers, I figure that you
can learn something from all of them.
