How about: "Of course, for those who have a need to run commerrcial or
educational software that is targeted toward the non-UNIX user, MacOS is a
better choice than any mickeysoft POS."
Keep in mind that MacOS X is UNIX under the gloss, and prettty good at
that. I, as much as anybody, use UNIX for a buttload of things (Ummm...
my company prefers it?), but I have both SPARCstations and Macs at home.
Different tools for different needs. I would be foolish to trry and
shoehorn my needs into one system, if two can cover them better.
They're tools, not a religion. If I could rely on Windows (and if it
worked in a way that I found productive) I'd use it. But, MacOS and UNIX
fill my needs.
