Apple, I want a happy meal!

February 5th, 2010

Okay people. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m not an Apple fan. Some claim that I’m a Microsoft fan boy, but that isn’t true. I just hate Apple. Why do I hate Apple? Because I hate their elitist attitude. Elitists always piss me off. You walk into a restaurant, you get a ton of choices. I get to chose soup or salad, my dressing, the temperature of my meat, my side, hell, I might make a substitution. Apple is that fancy shmancy place where the chef picks your food. Sure that’s good some times, but hell if I’m going to pay for something I don’t like. An hell if I’m going to not eat. So 99.99999999% of the time, I’m going to a place where I can pick my meal.

Now linux is like having a Costco card. I can buy pretty much anything, get it real cheap, but if I want it to be good I have to learn. And while I don’t mind to much, dammit I want to eat now.

Then there is Microsoft, they are McDonald’s. They have food that everyone complains about, yet everyone eats. I know a lot of people that don’t like the McRib, complain about how supersizing ruined their life. Hell, I just watched a commercial where they wrapped a big mac in a tortilla. I have no idea why, but I ate it and it was good. Despite all the reasons not to, I still love the comforting mouth feel of their fries. I don’t need a fru-fru sea bass wrapped in a banana leaf. I just need a happy meal.
