We artsy-fartsies largely use macs, in the UK, Canada, France, the US etc. As for Texas - don't they ban artsy-fartsies from Texas? Or maybe they just corral 'em all in Austin? :)

Austin and the Oak Lawn section of Dallas :D

I see plenty of Macs in Texas at coffee shops but then I live in a medium-sized town with a large university.

Mainly, I was referring to Mac forums online. Lots of Brit participation, IMHO.

It's interesting how different people react to certain things. To some, a computer is just a machine. To others, it's practically an adopted child.

Personally, I think the choice between computers and operating systems is a matter of personality. I use Macs because they complement my thinking.

My dad, on the other hand, is almost racist when it comes to computers (computerist?). Talking about computers around him is as bad as bringing up religion and politics. Macintosh practically is a religion to him. Which is kind of funny, since he was a die-hard PC man until a friend of his forced him to spend 1/2 hour on his Mac Classic. Then he went the other way completely.
