Macs and nerds and switchers

“Windows lost a huge chunk of the nerd market. Nerd switchers, in and of themselves, don’t constitute a significant enough number of people to account for anything other than a tiny blip in Apple’s Mac sales. But nerds are the people who recommend computers to friends and families; it seems inarguable that there are an awful lot of nerds recommending Macs today who weren’t five years ago.”

I am one of those nerds who tried a Mac in 2005 and bought another in 2006 and so far I have convinced two family members and one friend to purchase a Mac.
