Vocal Minority
As a recent and vocal convert to the Cult of Mac I have to defend my preferred computing platform quite a bit. PC users are quick to criticize and deride Apple products, often going so far as to hold irrational hatred towards them (as I once did.) When iTunes for windows was released a few weeks ago I know a lot of PC users were very happy about it. However, there was a vocal minority that bitched about one thing or another even as Time Magazine called the iTunes Music Store the "Invention of the Year."

After Paul's recent troubles and resulting rants with his newly purchased iPod I have decided to stop fighting the loosing battle of evangelizing Apple to PC users. They will always find some flaw in an Apple product and be deaf and blind to all the benefits. It really isn't worth the headaches and blood-boiling arguments. I will add "computing platform of choice" to politics and religion to my list of taboo conversation topics. And I will rest easy knowing that I am happy with my choice of Apple products. I will even go as far as to cease my criticism of Microsoft and their "secure computing platform."

I still hope that people will see the light and make the switch to Apple products, and I will provide support (both moral and technical) when they do, but they are going to have to do it on their own now. The Cult of Mac isn't for everyone, and I, for one, hope it stays that way.
