Dave Barry on Macintosh


I got Dave Barry in Cyberspace when it first came out, and recently thought of this awesome quote:

For many years, while we MS-DOS people were typing insanely obscure instructions like:

dir c:\abcproj\docs\lttrs\sales\apr\*.*

... the Apple people were simply aiming their little mouse pointers at little pictures and going "click."
In short, the Apple was far easier to use. So the vast majority of us serious computer users rejected it.
