Mac, Linux or Windows: It Really Doesn’t Matter Anymore

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft
Mac

“Windows is better, you Mac people are morons” or ”Mac OS X is the single greatest operating system in history, and you’re stupid for thinking otherwise” or ”shut up, all of you, and install Linux. Now“.

Stop the flame war. It matters less and less every year what operating system you use, because every year we all spend more time on our computer using nothing but the browser. And browsers are cross-platform.
