Many considering the switch from Bill (Windows, Bill Gates) to Mac (Apple, Macintosh) thanks to the latter’s superior speed and immunity may find my own experience helpful in making the decision:

The two good things about the new Macs are 1/ that you can run Windows on them rather than Mac OS and 2/ that they now use proper Intel architecture. You don’t have to choose between Bill and Mac.

What has this to do with etymology? (And wasn’t this posted previously under an extended title?)

This has nothing to do with the topic of Wordorigins, and the thread should be deleted.

Definitely off topic. Please keep posts related to words and language. There are plenty of places on the net to get advice on computers. This is not one of them.

I’m closing the thread to further comment.
