    Guess who else doesn't like Microsoft, or will NEVER own a PC.

    I consider the term "PC" to be OS-agnostic.

    As far as I'm concerned, I have a PC even though it doesn't run Windows.

    Personal Computer. Mac? It's still a PC. Just a marketting attempt to sound different.

    Agreed. They're all "PCs". But some PCs run Windows, some don't.

    Ipod: A portable hard drive.
    Disagree. Unlike "PC", iPod is not a generic term, it's an Apple product. Nor is it a "portable hard drive". I have 4 portable USB hard drives within arm's length right now and none are iPods or even play music.

    I call a Windows PC a "PC" :P Because most PC's on the market run on Windows. Like if I drive down to Circuit there are no Macs or Linux OS PC's.

    "PC" is a much more generic name than it used to be. But it used to refer specifically the IBM PC. If a computer was advertised as "PC compatible" it meant that it would run the same stuff as an IBM PC - they were PC clones. Over time, as the PC compatible market became swamped with clones, the term "PC" started to be less specific to IBM and more of a generic term for actual IBM or clones. This trend continued once Windows became popularized. Now when you need to differentiate one type of computer from another, it's done by what OS it runs rather than the maker of the hardware (although in Apple's case, since there are no Apple clones, the maker and OS are used interchangeably most of the time).

    If you like what Wii has to offer, get a Wii.

    Yeah, I have the same but you'll probably find yourself alternating systems due to old fond memories

    That's pretty ignorant. I still play my N64 and PS2 even though I have a Wii. Just because it's not the next gen technology doesn't mean what you have isn't great.
