Windows Pain: How sweet it is

Charlie Brooker of the Guardian opines on Microsoft's grinning robots or the Brotherhood of the Mac. Which is worse? and loves the pain. But he's a Brit and they all like "six of the best." Check out this subtly psycho-sexual rant:
I know Windows is awful. Everyone knows Windows is awful. Windows is like the faint smell of piss in a subway: it's there, and there's nothing you can do about it. OK, OK: I know other operating systems are available. But their advocates seem even creepier, snootier and more insistent than Mac owners. The harder they try to convince me, the more I'm repelled. To them, I'm a sheep. And they're right. I'm a helpless, stupid, lazy sheep. I'm also a masochist. And that's why I continue to use Windows – horrible Windows – even though I hate every second of it. It's grim, it's slow, everything's badly designed and nothing really works properly: using Windows is like living in a communist bloc nation circa 1981. And I wouldn't change it for the world, because I'm an abject bloody idiot and I hate myself, and this is what I deserve: to be sentenced to Windows for life.

Translation: "I've been a baaaad boy. Please mistress, can I have some more?"

Your Say

I hate the Mac "everything is pretty, young and cool" BS, but I love the machines. Yes, they're overpriced, but they are fun and easy to use and I like their looks. When men choose their woman like that, no one thinks it weird. But they do think the guy a loser if he keeps picking women who abuse him, fall apart, get some filthy disease every other month and trash the house so badly he can't do anything there. So why does anyone tolerate an operating system like that?
