    How to be a Mac user
    Let me get this straight now, I think I'm getting the hang of it.

    1. Don't diss other OSes, even if they are really over priced
    2. Silently appriciate how wonderful Apple are
    3. Come out in mass when any other company upsets Apple, i.e. Real
    4. Avoid talking about the complicated issues


    Anything else?

    I don't really agree with point 4...
    Why avoid talking about complicated issues?!?

    I don't agree with any of them. This thread should be stabbed repeatedly with a butcher knife and be send to the land of misfit threads.

    Um I dont think I agree with any of them either..... No one can make a checklist about how to be something you are not. We'd all be the same otherwise

    How to be a Linux user
    1. Pick a distro, and swear your eternal alliegence to it.
    2. Pick a window manager and do the same.
    3. Defend the above choices against anyone who dares to suggest an alternative.
    4. Laugh at Windows users when they get spyware or viruses.
    5. Laugh at Mac users for paying too much.

    How to be a Windows User
    1. Open every attachment you get.
    2. Click on every popup you get.
    3. Don't bother with the service packs.
    4. Ditto with firewalls, antivirus, etc.
    5. Complain loudly when your system slows to a crawl.
