It is with heavy heart that I admit that this terrible time has come

I have brooded, of late. I have lain awake and pondered. I have constructed lists of pros and cons. I have considered my past and my future. I have wondered what I stand for, what I believe, what it all means.

And I have come to a momentous decision. The same decision that many of my friends have made, over the years. Again and again I chose not to follow them: but it seems clear to me now that the long-dreaded time has finally come.

Some may see my choice as elitist, a clear signal that I am no longer one with the people1. Some may even take it as a personal betrayal. But that's a chance I have to take. I would like it to be known that I will understand if you choose to turn away from me in response to what I now must do. No hard feelings. I won't judge. Indeed, part of me will even sympathize.

Some may wonder what I will do with my right middle finger, and the outer edge of my right thumb. I must admit that it is this which weighs most heavily on my mind. Once, when I followed the old ways, those were very nearly my instruments of choice. Now I fear they may languish all but unused, save for *, 8, I, K, the comma, and the spacebar. For as I understand it the new one-button regime will not require their special services.

Yes, it's true.
I'm gonna go Mac.
Will I ever go back?

1Don't look at me like that. I was totally one with the people. Ask any of 'em. No, not that guy. Someone else. Well, maybe not her. Look, some of my best friends are people!

As a fellow late comer... welcome aboard! You won't regret it - as long as you get the extended warranty (repairs are EXPENSIVE). Pip pip.

It was time you shed those PC "friends" of yours anyway. How can you even call yourself an artists sans a Mac? The miracle will be if the Mac peeps are willing to overlook your previous poor judgment. As a favour to you, I will advocate for your smooth entry into our elite ranks. But you may have to go through a wee hazing first. Don't worry, I'll oversee that particular ritual! Now, doesn't that make you feel better?

Praise the lord you have seen the light!

John 8:12 & 9:5 tell us, "Then spake Jesus again unto them saying, Apple is the light of the world: he that followeth it shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

Wecome brother to our religion.
