I was a mac user

I saw this T-Shirt on a tweet by Last Year’s Girl and though she admitted that it was not the case for her, I can (happily?) state that it is true for me. Tempted to get this T-Shirt as I was a Mac user from 1984 (we had a Mac 128k) through to about 1998. Technically later as I still used Macs on and off doing DTP stuff at my student union until about 2005. Actually the statement isn’t completely true I wasn’t a Mac user I was a Mac Zealot…

My progression as a Mac user went from the Mac 128k:

To a Mac Plus with a whopping 20 Mb external hard drive:

To the second of Apple’s “Pizza Box” budget Macs the LC II:

My divergence from the Mac Cause began when we bought a Mac Clone a Power Tower 200:

Then I went to Uni and bought a PC because it meant I could do my course work on a computer I could afford. I’ve not really looked back since, I’ve dabbled with Linux, but despite all my complaints with Windows I’ve now (for better of for worse) become a windows user. It’s funny how as late as 1998 I would religiously defend Macs they were just better. Now I’ve come to the opinion that all computers are just crap in different ways. All that changes is  what the computer is rubbish at and what it is slightly less rubbish at.

Although to be honest so long as a computer has a browser these days I can get 99% of what I want to do done on it…
