Don't you just hate it when people refer to the windows platform as 'PC'? For example, on the download page for Google Earth it says 'google earth for PC, Mac and Linux'. Surely Linux goes in both categories (as both macs and PCs are essentially PCs, ie personal computers), and it should be 'google earth for Windows, MacOSX and Linux'?

Just really winds me up for some reason. Probably because it reminds me that alot of people don't know that Linux exists and that the only operating system they can run on their PC is windows.

There was a thread about that not so long ago.

Closed.
