Trying to settle of bet.

Mac's are 'trendy', I was told Ducati's can also be in certain crowds. then came upon the bet that more Ducati owners also use Mac.

so heres one of the lamest polls ever.

Never owned Ducati, but like the idea of having one. Shit, I watch "Fled" just because of the 916's... Thank you DVD for making that easier to do!

Have a Mac, but not happy. I hated on my PC because I had to beat up XP to get it to act the way I wanted, and it seems I'll be doing the same to OS X - just gotta get used to it and tinker.

So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

How are we going to know if Ducati owners have more Macs by % than non-Duc bike owners? Are we going to have another poll for that? Or even, compared to non-bike owners.
