(I sort of thought this was going to be an interesting post, until I realized that none of the 500 words was in any way surprising. Except maybe the fact that Windows beats Mac, 4,181 to 3,424. But even that isn’t that surprising. Oh well. That’s what I get for cutting and pasting instead of actually writing something.)
