Just because you say something I don't agree with doesn't necessarily make either of us fanboys. But you wouldn't know it, reading blogs and forums. I do suspect that the more of a fanboy you are, the more likely you are to apply, and particularly misapply, the label.
Case in point: I said a few true things about Apple some days back, and a suspected Microsoft fanboy immediately assumed I was one of the devoted residents of the reality distortion field. I mean, me, an Apple fanboy? I last used MacOS in 1997, around the time Jobs came back and proceeded to try and kill all the Mac Compatible companies.. mine included. Didn't even use it much then -- CAD tools run on Windows. Which I use, along with Linux, on my desktop. Android alone occupies the OS slot of my mobile units.
Overused, indeed. And improperly applied, without much thought.
