It's just people, innit? You get exactly the same stuff from windows users if you want to switch to mac. He's right, it's nothing to do with computers at all, it's just group mentality that's at play here. And you only get to hear the noisy ones - all the folk that are happy with their own choice of computer/OS and are happy with whatever anyone else wants to use will never get heard, because they're too busy getting on with it to bother saying anything.

While there's always going to be fringe elements responding to blogs like his -- which basically slams Apple and Steve Jobs at the outset, so why wouldn't you be expecting posts that disagree with you? -- I actually had to read through part 3 of his "controversial journey" to get to a reply I thought was disrespectful ...
Most of them were cogent and fairly well-reasoned -- I think he just has a problem with people disagreeing with him in general ...
I didn't think many people hate the "other side" like this any more. I don't hate Windows users. I just hate using Windows. My dad still chooses to use Windows. I don't hate him because of it. My take on it is, 90% of the people still don't know what they are missing with Macs. Most buy Windows OS computers because they can't afford a Mac.

There is some truth to the idea that Apple controls the hardware we use. If you're running Windows or Linux you can buy hardware from a slew of computer manufacturers, but if you want to run OS X, you have to use an Apple product--peace be unto the hackintoshers. On the other hand, no one needs a web site to reveal that fact.
