Computers are computers are crap

I've mentioned before that I am a bit of a girl geek, having worked in and around IT for quite a few years. I'm constantly bemused by the competition between the various operating systems. For those of you who don't know there are 3 main competing operating systems - Windows (big share of the PC market), Apple OS X (small share of the PC market) and Linux & UNIX (hobby and serious PCs and BIG share of Internet servers). Some geeks may give me a hard time for lumping UNIX and LINUX together, suffice it to say they are similar enough in design and execution for it to be splitting hairs for most non-techies. The fans of the various operating systems are a devout lot, almost religious, and at times their cognitive dissonance gets the better of their logic - much to the amusement of us who have sufficient experience to know nothing stays the same in technology for very long.

All neatly explained by this video

It's worth checking this one out also...
