After 15 years of persecuting my friends, berating them for betting on the wrong horse, rejoicing in their lack of compatibility to the rest of the world, I gave in, I threw in the towel, I yielded. Yes, I switched sides. Secretly, for many years, I envied their particularities, their creativity, their sense of community with others like them. However, any thought to join their team was ridiculous -- they wouldn't survive! But against all odds, they were so optimistic -- didn't they know they would soon be proven obsolete?
However, I could not continue to deny my years of dissatisfaction with the powers-that-be, I knew that it had been far too long since I saw the kind of innovation and excitement that was clearly evident in my friends community. When my work offered me the chance to switch sides, I realized that my loyalty to my previously held convictions had ceased. I now play for the other team.
This post represents my first entry as a (gulp) Macuser... (there, I said it). Bye, bye PC...
