Perspective indeed. 

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.
