Charlie Brooker enters the Mac vs. PC swamp


Charlie Brooker, best known for the brilliant Screenwipe series on UK television, is also a scowling mendicant within the pages of the Guardian. Uusually he comments on the media, but this week’s column focuses on the zealotry of Mac users (he hates them) and the idiocy of MIcrosoft’s upcoming Windows 7 “launch parties”. Brooker not only admits that he’s a glutton for punishment by continuing to use Windows, but that any company that comes up with ridiculous infomercials starring Z-grade actors to promote their operating system is to be both mocked and feared. Whether you’re a PC user or a Mac fanatic, this is an entertaining read.
