Dvorak Claims Media Bias Against Microsoft

John C. Dvorak:

As big and as important as Microsoft is, the coverage of the company is quite mediocre. This is particularly true in the mainstream press. The reason for this is that today’s newspaper and magazine tech writers know little about computers and are all Mac users. It’s a fact.

Even if it’s true that most (or “all”, as Dvorak claims) mainstream technology reporters are Mac users, isn’t the most likely explanation that they use Macs because they do know something about computers?
