What’s a Mac?

If a server is a sever, a mainframe is a mainframe, a PC is a personal computer, what’s a mac supposed to be?

I recall back in computer class in the 80s, a Mac was a Macintosh Personal Computer. This has bothered me ever since Apple started pushing ads with the whole Mac vs PC campaign.

Are Apple’s new target market supposed to be idiots or is Apple unhappy with the fact that personal computer makes people think they own their computer as opposed to Apple owning their customers?

Notice the old cover of Macworld identifies Macintosh as “Apple’s Remarkable New Personal Computer”.

I guess nobody really knows what Goofy is either.

Here’s to you Mac, whatever you are.
