Hmmm, by your own dig with misspellings underlined below, I get the idea that you really don't like the Windows operating system.

I assume you get a kick out of the tv commercials where the hip (and smug) 20-something Macintosh rep dishes (disses?) it out to the pc guy, portrayed as frumpy, pompous and hopelessly inept.

In the latest one I saw, the Mac guy even gets the girl.

Is it really that way and we Windows users are nerds with pocket protectors on the Dark Side?

Are there no downsides with Macs and their accompanying op sys, and are all their users are like the guy (and gal) on tv?

I'm not a Windows fanatic, but I just never see Windows users use misspellings and other digs against Macs in business and other serious discussions until someone like me points it out.

Say you have a shell or command-line environment. Um, a command-line window in Windoze for example.

(more snipped)

You can either issue another of the special-purpose commands of this lingering utility, or you can say "exit" and find yourself back at (say) the Windoze command-line prompt (DOS prompt).
