Just do what I do.
Say "Get a Mac, then call me back" and hang up.

And the funniest and most maddening part is, when I tell them things like "Hmm, sounds like it could be a problem with ____, but I'm really not sure what to tell you." They think I'm DODGING THEM. Like I know the answer but just don't want to help.

It's as if, because I never have problems with my Mac and have spent time as a consultant installing Mac hardware and software for all sorts of people, then I MUST ALSO know lot's and lot's about solving every bass-akwards Windows problem that crops up on their systems.

Survey SAYS? XXXXXXX!
