Pro Microsoft Bias

On the way home today, I picked up a magazine to read, mostly for the hardware reviews of portable music players such as the iPod and the Rio Karma. The magazine in question claims to be a PC magazine, and to me that means computers built round the x86 family processor and other similar systems. In my mind an Intel PC running Linux or BSD is still a PC, and while it may be very shiny and very fast a G5 running OS X, is still a PC.

It's very clear that there is a strong pro Microsoft, pro Windows bias running through the whole magazine. As an individual, once you move out side the narrow confines of the Windows world, you realise how stifling and restricted it is. You start to notice a strong pro Windows bias ever where, it's almost as if you have shifted into another dimension...
