	It also doesn't cost nothing to post your flames on these machines.

	Now that that's over with, I can explain. I'll take it slow since
by your disgust it's clear you've never experienced multimedia:
	The Macintosh is a personal computer. One of the benefits of a Mac
over a PC is its lush user environment, should you choose to play a little.
You can have background pictures on the desktop (this is what the backdrop
of the Mac is called) and have the make play sounds when you do things like
eject/insert a disk, type certain keys, boot/reboot/shutdown or get an 
error message. All these seeming frills make my working environment more
humourous and pleasurable, which leads to greater productivity. I also 
just find it funny for my desktop computer to say "DAMN fine coffee!" at
me. 

	Perhaps your .sig should be:
	"Everything I don't agree with is STUPID!"
