I’M CURIOUS. When I first started using computers, I used Macintosh. Beautiful machines, and I was devastated when my employer switched wholesale to PCs a few years later. Just before I became an MP I bought an iMac, but after my election it became clear that sticking to the Mac operating system was going to be difficult, given that the entire parliamentary estate is based on Microsoft software.
So I switched to PC. But the allure of the Mac was just too strong, and for the past year, I’ve been using a Macbook for most of my work, including this blog.With the media reporting conflicting stories about the share of the computer market being won by Apple and Microsoft respectively, I was wondering what the preferred platform of British bloggers is, or indeed, whether any of my own regulars have had a dalliance with Steve Jobs, or are staying faithful to Bill Gates.
I’d be interested to get any feedback on this, if for no other reason than to to satisfy my own curiosity.
