[Phys-L] Re: Mac users may not be more intelligent,

At the risk of having my writing critiqued for style and vocabulary, I will state that my choice for a home computer was fully determined by my desire to be compatible with the IBM type PC my employer (Westinghouse and later Northrop Grumman) issued me at work. This was a common decision path among my fellow workers. Had the work issued computer been a Mac, undoubtedly, I would have bought one of that type. So my degree of literacy seems to have not affected the decision-making process.
