Could you imagine if one of those PC-pounding morons at "PC Week" or "PC Mag" or "PC Xtr3m l33t haX0r5" would actually try an iMac for longer than a day, harrumphing, and going back to their beige boxes?
It can happen. David Coursey, a PC-only guy for years decided to try out the new iMac and see if it could be his main computer. It had mixed results, and he went back to his PC, but something magical happened. His heart grew three sizes that day.
Now he can't say anything bad about Apple. He uses his iMac almost exclusively. He has been saved, brothers and sisters. Saved.
A bit of a chronicle of his "conversion" can be seen here. I've enjoyed reading it over the months, and thought I might pass it along.
Also, a observation here - he was turned on to Apple by using an iMac. Immersion, if you will. It wasn't done by self-appointed Apple evangelists writing angry letters regarding his pro-Windoze articles. He learned by trying, and that is always the best tool a MacAddict has.
Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Give a man a Mac...
