15 Things only Mac converts understand

Some of the best advice I ever received was about which conversation topics you can't and can use when you're meeting with strangers. Never bring up religion, never bring up politics and never — ever, under any circumstance — talk about computer platforms. While that's great advice — like, don't-feed-them-after-midnight great advice — we're going to do it anyway. 

Without further ado, here are 15 things only people who've converted from PC to Mac understand. PC users: Put down that giant trackball… it's all in good fun.
