While Apple is currently enjoying an increased incidence of users switching to the Mac platform from Windows, some prominent users are switching away from the Mac…
In response, Mac users rushed to defend the platform against Pilgrim’s wild assertions concerning his own personal requirements.
“Who does this guy think he is?” shot back Panic’s Steven Frank. “What, Lord Pilgrim needs his precious data in a format that he’ll be able to access in perpetuity?
“Actually, you know what? That doesn’t sound like such a bad idea.”
Others questioned whether Pilgrim had ulterior motives in switching.
“He’s totally in the pocket of big Linux,” said Jay Curtis of Your Mac Life. “There’s a lot of money out there to be made in switching to Linux. Big Linux is practically throwing money at prominent Mac bloggers, trying to get them to switch. He’s been paid off by the man.”
“You’re way off base,” said Shawn King. “Linux users are all a bunch of Islamo-fascist communists. Mark’s obviously switching because he was captured by Jihado-terrorist troll patchers as a child and programmed to go off like a bomb thirty years later… and switch to Linux. It’s all part of their insidious plot to destroy our liberties by making us spend all out time compiling various Linux distros.
“It’s the only rational explanation.”
Pilgrim probably maintains that none of these is the reason, but who the hell gives a crap. The guy’s obviously just a kook.
