If you regularly find yourself using words like "Winblows" or putting the dollar sign in "M$" you are an enormous dipshit.

"Wintendo" refers to a Windows box that is used SOLELY for the purpose of gaming and implies that everything else you use is *nix or its relatives. "Wintendo" is not a clever way of saying "Windows" in general. It is very specific. If you are using "Wintendo" incorrectly you are exactly the person who shouldn't be trying to use the word "Wintendo". And you're a tool.

Hadn't run across Wintendo, but there are folks on my Friends list who consistently say "Xmyth" or "Satyrday", which is just as obnoxious. (See also: consistent usage of Home Despot, Circuit Shitty, Rat Shack, Wally World, etc. Wasn't funny the first time, tooltastic then and now.)

Yes. Exactly. All of that.

Does it count if I occasionally tell the Microsofties I know that their employer should be nationalized and run as a public utility? It makes them turn SUCH funny colors, I'd hate to have to give it up.

"Wintendo" is awful.

Mind you the person that says it probably owns 4-5 items from the thinkgeek.com catalogue and refers to their PC as a "rig" whilst having a forums sig that contains their ram timings.
