Amiga Persecution Complex n.
The disorder suffered by a
particularly egregious variety of bigot, those who believe
that the marginality of their preferred machine is the result of
some kind of industry-wide conspiracy (for without a conspiracy of
some kind, the eminent superiority of their beloved shining jewel
of a platform would obviously win over all, market pressures be
damned!) Those afflicted are prone to engaging in flame wars
and calling for boycotts and mailbombings. Amiga Persecution
Complex is by no means limited to Amiga users; NeXT, NeWS,
OS/2, Macintosh, LISP, and GNU users are also common
victims. Linux users used to display symptoms very frequently
before Linux started winning; some still do. See also newbie,
troll, holy wars, weenie, Get a life!.
