When it comes to the "Mac or PC" question, I am not neutral. It's more that I decided at a certain point to wash my hands of the business of telling people which to buy. I am not the right person to ask, if only because I lack perspective, and I will avoid that conversation whenever possible. When pressed, I will say "Buy what's right for you", because that really is sound advice.
What I never say is "It's just a tool." To be honest, that sentence makes me feel a little sick and sad inside. Like many people who live by their tools, I feel there is no such thing as "just a tool".
