I really f*cking hate it when someone tells me they use PC and they look weirded out at me when I ask what operating system they use and say 'well I use PC so windows obviously' and then I'm like ' PC STANDS FOR PERSONAL COMPUTER NOT FOR F*CKING WINDOWS', man, can't stand those people

    @rookiemaverick @gauthier almost, not quite...
    (IMO of course)
    At home: I have an Apple PC that runs Mac OS
    At work: I have an HP that runs Windows OS

    @rookiemaverick Well, since it's a computer and it's yours, then technically it's a personnal computer.

    You're being a little unfair. Yes, originally "PC" stood for "personal computer" (and still does), but like many terms, it has evolved to be understood in a specific way. The vast, vast majority of the English-speaking general public will understand "PC" as "Windows machine" - heck, even Microsoft and Apple have adverts based on this premise. OCD sufferers and pedants only get caught up in that it's actually a wider classification.

    10 years ago, their used to be a race of people who said: "I have a PPC, not a PC, it's different"

    @samk yeah, but they shouldn't look at me like an idiot for correcting them or expecting a more detailed answer 😕

    Same deal with people that make a distinction between iPad and tablet. Tablet being a screen that runs s android. What about Windows tabs? What about Linux tabs? Eh? Arrrghrrrgrllgl

    The thing is people expect that a PC has windows, but when you ask them what to call a Linux machine they say PC too.

    @afflict well an iPad is a tablet, but not every tablet is an iPad.

    @epse Yes this also annoys the hell out of me. when people go like 'this is not a tablet, it's an iPad!' and then I'm like 'oh for f*cks sake'
