To an extent... the High Priests can be divided into two distinct groups.<br><br>The delusional; and the seers, so to speak.<br><br>The latter takes advantage of their position; and only retain that position due to its noted advantages. Very calculated. The former, however, are the worst of all - ignorant and deluded. They exist in their position out of sheer blindness.<br><br>They don't see the light; it blinds them.<br><br>Now, I forgot to classify the Mac zealots... oh boy. That's a tough one indeed.<br><br>I'll leave that to everybody's imagination, for the moment... 1.30AM isn't the best time to conjure such words about the most overzealous group of all... not necessarily ignorant, but disregarding reality. Nearly on par with the ignorant High Priests of the Windows world...<br><br>Nice to see ya Yoyo :)<br><br>You're missed around 'NN.<br><br>

I shudder every time I read that title: "The Cult Of The Mac". Reminds me of the "The Mac Corner", a column that runs in my local technology rag. One or two pages out of a 70 page publication about the Mac. Basically, the title, like "Cult of The Mac", propagates a view which is closed-minded and not at all inviting to users of other platforms. It's cliquey. It's not the way I view the platform at all.<br><br>Here's why I prefer the Mac: when I want to do something on it, it just works. That's a good reason to use a Mac, no? I don't think it's zealous, either. I have no problem recommending a Mac to others, simply 'cause I get a lot of *work* done with it, and I think they could too.<br><br>Krishen<br><br>
You're right. Maybe it is best to leave a description of the Maczealot to the imagination. It's hard sometimes not to come across as one, though, since most Wintel folks assume the "normalcy" of their platform, so that to distinguish, for instance, my experience in using a computer from theirs I have constantly to say, "on a Mac . . . ." That is so easy to hear as zealotry.<br><br>But then, maybe I am a zealot. What the heck. Why not accept the truth <br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear
