Microsoft's Incompetence Stimulates the Economy

With all the success that the iPod has brought Apple, more and more members of the mainstream press are publishing their own "switcher" stories that detail their successful transition from the Windows world into the Mac world. Spurned on by the increased commercial presence of Apple, these columnists have decided to publish their findings on seeing "just how easy using a Mac really is." Now, most of them publish some kind of article talking about the various nuances of the OS and the beauty of the computers, but this article published in the Orlando Sentinalbrings up a rather tongue-in-cheek point that if everyone switched to a Mac, a large portion of the economy would crash based on the fact that so many people make their money fixing the problems that Microsoft has built into their products.


The short column can be found right here, "Geeks aside, Apple is Gospel of Simplicity."

So, if you guys ever had to deal with a rather cocky computer technician at your local CompUSA or wherever, make sure you do your part to get him fired by buying a Mac! :-)

I don't know if I'll make the jump and buy a Mac...though my sister made the plunge and bought a Powerbook. She loves it!
