Check out this item from a 1996 edition of Macaddict magazine.

Funny how just a decade later the "Windows user" looks much more "in" and cool. P.s. reminds me of an English Amiga mag (don't remember which, was some years ago, maybe it was Amiga Format) calling PC users the "cardigan and slippers brigade"

this is funny. looks quite prescient of those mean-spirited Mac ads they have now where the PC is personified as a nerdy, insecure businessman and the Mac is just like one relaxed and cool ass dude

Just goes to show that the PC never goes "out of style" and the Mac is always chasing the "latest trend".

Not that either pictured above are particularly stylish.

Macs were gay in 1996?

<3 John Hodgman, though.
