Hunch, the latest project from Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake, just published an interesting infographic chock full of data from a survey of 388,315 of the site’s users. Even though Microsoft hasn’t made a successful jump to the mobile space, the inescapable Mac vs. PC argument is showing no signs of fading here in 2011.
“It’s an epic battle really, the competition between Mac and PC owners. It’s been going on ever since the two had a clash sometime during the ’80s,” writes BitRebels’ Richard Darell. “Well, it wasn’t so much of a clash, but more of a competition about what each one is capable of.”
The blog Hunch‘s latest project was to take the two sides and question them about how they saw themselves. Then they put the two sides of data cores together into one infographic (before diving in, keep in mind, that Hunch’s users are generally pretty tech savvy and on the leading edge of adopting new tech.)
Hunch’s blog notes, “We found that people who choose one or the other – and 75 percent of the 400,000 people we asked did self-identify as either more Mac or PC – exhibit very distinct demographics, personality traits, and aesthetic/food/media choices.” [Hunch via Huffington Post and Bit Rebels]
