Adding Computer format to About Me

Hey guys,
Wouldn't it make sense to add a box to the About Me profile that we can indicate what computer format we have, ie Windows Vista, Mac, Linux, etc. This way if answering a question on a thread, we have an idea if we are talking to a Windows person or a Mac person. Might be helpful.

I really don't like socializing with Mac people either. Too bad my girlfriend is one of them.

As we all "know", using a Mac in Oregon is forbidden by the Oregon makes MS rich Act. Conclusion: You can't be a Mac person.

When they took those wagon trains to Oregon, they had two choices, buy a Windows based computer and have money left over for food or buy a MAC and have no money for food. They chose the Windows route so they could survive. They then banned the MAC so they would not have to deal with the bodies from starvation.

Yep. It is amazing how many people are Linux users and don't even know it. Many consumer electronic device use it, TiVo, GPSes, MP3 players, eBook readers.

What is an "apple people"? I think there is a vocal minority of iPod/Mac fanbois that give the rest of us a bad name. Yes, I have an iPod and a Mac and a few Dells and a TiVo and a Sony Reader and a Kindle.

Stereotypes annoy me.

stereotype people are always fun, they read about how they are to act and follow suit, many mac people are fine after you get a few doughnuts in them and they start to mellow
