We had a new girl start at work last week. Once she was informed that i
was in the IT dept. she naturally started asking me about her home Win32
PC issues, and i went into my, quick and to the point, speech stating
that i don't use Windows and couldn't really give an opinion on her
issues one way or another. She then asked, "What else is there? Do you
use DOS?". I certainly don't expect your average person to be aware of
all the esoteric options available to the geeks of the world, but i
would have at least expected her to assume OSX or MacOS. Microsoft
knows how to lead their sheep.
