Bare with me: what ever device, OS, brand that you like, you'll be called a fanboy if you talk about it... We see that mostly in forums or in comments from a text in a blog. I am wondering as to why it is so negative to have a good expericence with a technology provider? Here, on the iPad forum, most are Apple iDevice users, with some Android device users. In general, the atmosphere is really good and we can freely talk about what we like and what we don't like without being called a fanboy. But that status is quite rare as often, saying that you're satisfied with your choice on other website will end with the fanboy tag as fast as you can press that send button... And this is not just with Apple's products or Android's products but anything related to computers... What is wrong with people? There will be always someone, in a few minutes of your posting, replying that you are just a fanboy. I know, this has to be expected from the human race, but why specifically on technology related products? You don't see that in the car industry, or service related products... For example, if I say that I really liked a movie, nobody will answer back with "You don't know what you're talking about, you should have seen that other movie instead!". Same goes with a brand new car: "You moron, you should have bought the xxx brand instead!". But with technology related products, it just goes crazy... Everyone is an expert, everyone is right... Is this a religion thing, a statement of my personal life? And even so, can I be just happy with my choice? Don't worry, I'm not facing a new struggle in my life . I've been an Ubuntu user since 2004, and I'm am quite used to that phenomenon. First, I was thinking that it was a Wndows/Linux thing. But I can see with iOS/Android/etc that it's not. I don't care if Apple, Microsoft, Linux, Android, etc.. is better. What counts is that the choice I made satisfies my needs. And let me be happy about it. You can share your expericence, you can asked about how I dealt with a limitation, you can comment about my point of view, you can correct me if I made and error... But please, drop the fanboy thing! It feels like someone from the dark ages shouting "Heretics!" Freedom is not about being superior, it's about choosing what you want, be it the best or the worse... And you, are you a "fanboy/fangirl"? VicoPad addict!
