[OT-Rodeo] Still waiting for the aha moment

"Somehow statements about how ultimately more practical and economical it is 
to have an Intel Mac ( any Intel Mac* ) be one's main machine rather than a 
PC and a Hackintosh has turned into some kind of discourse about 'class 
struggle' between the rich Macintosh fanboys and the poor struggling Windows 
/ Linux guys. Good lord."

Clever misrepresentation of the argument.

My point was, your seemingly snarky remark that appeared to insinuate that I
have the means to purchase another machine to develop on, reeked of classism
and the false dichotomy of "the rich Macintosh fanboys vs the poor
struggling Windows / Linux guys" you now so condescendingly speak about. I
personally don't care what hardware you are using or what means you use to
do your work. Technology is indifferent to me. The fetish over the form that
the commodity assumes is not. However, I do care about snarky sectarianism
being spewed out as if such class divisions are not a reality. I did not
start this argument, my friend. I am simply pursuing it. You have been
called out. Yet, this is not the proper forum for such a discussion. As
such, this will be my final post regarding it.

Class war rages on every day, whether you choose to believe otherwise and
delve into your career and technology addiction trying to escape it.  Why
build such walls around yourself? One day your career will have no more use
for you. I hope that one day I will have no more use for my career.

My apologies to the rest of the list for this series of posts. This is not
just a troll attempt.
