Shhh – don’t show Lileks this link.
Scott is obviously looking for a little ego-massaging. Trolling for hits, and all that. You’d think he’d be able to come up with something better than baiting Mac users, though. That’s rookie league.
as i explained to greg on our website (obviously in a caring manner, as befits him) i had no idea that macsurfer EXISTED prior to them picking up my post. i was just making a comment. but the astoundingly defensive comments that came from “macsurfers” was too funny to leave alone.
however, i respect the paranoia of anyone who suspects that someone commenting on mac-love is “baiting” mac users. go on, brother!
I think the phrase “rookie league” is rookie league.
Mac users tend to form something of a social club, really. It’s no different than Ferrari clubs and the like. People with similar interests in technical finesse, aesthetic beauty and engineering ethic like to pat each other on the back and bask in the glory that is the machine of their dreams.
We’re willing to pay a premium for something that works better than everything else, and we like to share our experiences of the same.
Now, some people who look at a Ferrari, scoff at it and happily continue driving their “good enough” Chevy aren’t likely to understand or empathize with the concept, but… their loss.
I believe the expression is “bush league.” An all-rookie league would be fun to watch, though.
After reading this post by Scott over at Wunderkinder and especially after reading the comments I now understand the root personality differences between “PC” users and “Mac” users.It is something like this:Hat Tip to Stephen Green….

This may explain a few things.
