Hey Moderators, I cannot downrate your posts but get downrated all the time by u?
You did successfully downvote my post (about dual-booting and dual-OS-VM's), which cancelled out the existing up-vote. What was wrong with it, can I ask? Did I say something incorrect?

As phantom said, at this current moment, your post on the previous page ("Ubuntu beats them all out of the water...") was down-voted by 3 users and up-voted by 1; none of those members were moderators.
Your post on this page ("there's much more than proprietary crap. Lots of silly people in this forum...") was down-voted by a different 2 users, neither of them moderators.

That's 5 people who aren't happy with the way in which you're expressing your opinions, none of them moderators. If you're being down-voted "all the time", that's an indication that the community as a whole (not necessarilly the moderators) thinks that either your attitude is unhelpful or your facts are wrong. If you would like to discuss hypothetical reasons why specific posts are unpopular, feel free to PM me. Edited by Hodgman

These days the choice between getting an apple machine or a 'regular' pc is just a matter of lifestyle, there are people who are willing to spend a lot of money on a sleek design and a nice little apple logo, and that's perfectly fine IMO (it's their money after all)
The argument that macs are better for artists sounds quite ridiculous to me since most major applications for professional content creation is available for both platforms (yes I'm looking at you Adobe CS), and I see absolutely no evidence that windows-based machines lack any features or technological capabilities in this area compared to apple machines.
The 'mac is better because it's a Unix derivate' argument is quite strange in my eyes too since you're still throwing thousands of dollars/euros at a machine and operating system while there are so many more open Unices or Unix-like systems available which offer the same capabilities for free as long as you have the machine, and building a machine with the same specs of an apple machine yourself is a lot cheaper than buying said apple machine.

Maybe you should look at your own posts first to find the reason why you're being downvoted?
