Macs vs. Anything Else

I’m religious, but not about computers. I think they are tools—things to be used to accomplish other things. They can be used for entertainment, for development, for business, for communication. Definitely for streaming music. They can be used by the Russians to direct public opinion.

But they are just tools—things to allow us to accomplish greater things, not do greater things for us.

I’m sitting in my downtown coworking space. There are nine people here right now. Eight are using Macs. I’m using a Dell. Am I an outsider, or is there a new freelancer religion that I failed to grasp?

The irony that people attempting to identify with a fringe movement often end up looking the same has never escaped me.

p.s. I do prefer Bash. Perhaps that’s reason enough to change.
