Now, as a disclaimer, I’m not in any way talking about technical stuffs such as quality and performance. There’s already much debate of that in other place. The one I’m talking about here is simply about a colossal drama I watched ever since my college years.
The big names are Windows, Linux and Mac. The colossal number of casts are the public opinion (although this is a personal observation, not formal defendable research).
Windows has been “the bad guy” for long time. Years back, the one who contests that supremacy is Linux. Both side has their noisy zealots of course, and both are noisy if you can’t adapt to listening their debates. ^^;
But recently, with Mac’s comeback, I think the anti-MS front has switched side and raised OSX as their champion to fight the overlord.
Maybe this is because my tech news sites reading are not the same as it used to, but I find it ironic that I almost never heard of Linux talked as much as it used to. Now, the recommended alternative for those not wanting to use Windows would be OSX, not any Linux distribution.
Anyone felt the same ? Or is it just a change of my point of view ?
