Had a conversation with a PC tech today…he was explaining to someone else why design people like Macs, and said, “It’s because they’re creative. They don’t want to know how it works; they just want to use it. They don’t want to change it, they just want it to do what it’s supposed to.”
So tell me–is there anyone out there (geeks excepted) who actually wants to have to know how computers work? Doesn’t everyone want to just use them?
I think he was trying to be vaguely insulting, but I wasn’t hurt in the least–hey, if you want to spend your days trying to figure out why, every time you hit the escape key, your whole system crashes, go for it! If you want to use all your bandwidth downloaded security patches, help yourself. When you get bored, Eldo and I will be in the corner, editing some tail-kicking sequences.
