Like most bloggers, I enjoy a little voyeuristic peek into who is visiting my blog now and again.
Tools such as SiteMeter and other hit counter/tracker type objects make it easy to not only track where the hits are coming from, but provide a bevy of other information about the hittees as well.
Such as this bit of info I screenshot recently from my own SiteMeter logs...specifically, look at the sixth category down, "Operating System."
Yes, you can run Windoze on a Mac. And according to this Mac ad (and PC World magazine), it apparently can run faster.
Unfortunately, the Microserf excuse-for-an-OS will still be as buggy, and ugly, and nonsense ridden, and cryptic as ever, regardless of what computer it's being run on.
Like putting a Yugo motor in a Shelby Cobra. It may start, and run, and get you to the grocery store once in awhile, but you'd be constantly wondering when (not if) the sad excuse for a vehicular powerplant was going to blue screen you, leaving you stranded by the side of the road.
And yes, I too enjoyed the irony that the hittee in this particular instance was using a corporate IBM connection to browse my blog.
So, near as I can figure, this person was an IBM employee, running WindozeXP on a Mac.
Course, I could have misinterpreted the data and be totally wrong.
But if not...sweet.
