So I thought on occasion of today being the 35th Anniversary of the day Steve Jobs introduced the Macintosh, I would share a Mac story of my own.
It's was good number of years ago and I was a guest at a wedding in Maine. I came to find out that the Groom Worked for and had one of the first Titanium G4s in The Country and The Maid of Honor Worked for Microsoft at Redmond! At the time I had a G3 "Wallstreet" Powerbook that would if you asked it nicely boot into Windows. So I was giving the Maid of Honor all kinds of Grief all weekend long this... and Macintosh that....
So as a kind of weird peace offering i went into the room next to where she was and booted into Mac OS and then walked into the room where she was and booted into Windows. Her back was toward me but she immediately pivoted to the source of the Windows Startup sound like The Borg getting Assimilated with a look of sheer joy on her face. Then she saw the glowing white logo on the lid and her whole face crumbled she looked at me with a look of sheer incomprehension and said to me Your Running Windows? And I said Yes, and she looked at me and repeated over and over "Your Running Windows on a Mac!?" The closer I got to her it was as if I was holding glowing Kryptonite, as she just could not believe how her beloved operating system was somehow running on an Laptop!!
