See? Told you so.

Now, notice that I never implied anything about the skills or expertise
required to operate or administer Linux as opposed to the Mac OS.

If you insist on not reading my post past "Linux, bah..", and flying off the
handle after that, ripping on the archetypical "dumb Mac user", fine. Thanks
for once again confirming me in my opinion that Linux is far more
interesting as a sociological phenomenon than as an OS.

There are only 10 kinds of people in this world:
Those that understand binary, and those that don't.
