    Ok i know a PC (personal computer) is called a pc when using microsoft
    but i never hear Mac people calling their hardware "PC"
    so what do Mac and Linux users call it?





    Apologieze for wasting your time

    I believe Mac users use the cunning and somewhat misleading term Mac to describe their mactypepcthingy.

    As far as I know it's to do with hardware, and not the OS.

    Linux users use the term PC too, as far as I know.


    And mac users say mac, 'cos they are weird.
