Windows marks the villain
PCs Are Incorrect on TV: "In Fox's hit TV show, 24, starring Kiefer Sutherland, the villains use PCs running Microsoft Windows. The good guys, of course, use Macs." -- JD Lasica notes that the same is true for Felicity, Alias, and other shows.
On a related note, my household of three XP machines (laptop, desktop, server) will loose one to the side of free software tomorrow. By way of a good friend and FreeBSD zealot, who claims a running FreeBSD 4.x in 15 minutes flat, I'll be converting the server over. About time too. Developing PHP for use on Apache and MySQL was always going to be second best on a Windows box.
