For various reasons, I didn’t get around to linking to this article from the Graun: why Charlie Booker hates Macs. I don’t know Charlie Booker, but I have a feeling he and I would get along.

I am now slightly nervous about being slammed by all the Mactards out there, especially having spent some time reading the Secret Diary of Steve Jobs. The parody blogger is funny, but some of the commenters… are just scary.

NB: I don’t hate Macs or Apple on principle, just in practice. I just really, really hated using them when I’ve had to (was given a PowerBook G3 by an old employer which I took to OS X.3, and had to use a variety of Macs to publish the various papers/magazines I worked on as a student). They are pretty, though.
