If someone discriminates against a specific gender or race, they are dubbed racist or sexist.  I discriminate against AMD processors, acer computers and ATi graphics cards.  Does this make me hardwarist?

Should I warn any future employers that I have an intolerance to these products?

No doubt you all have a list of specific hardware you stay away from (ie non qwerty keyboards).  Are we all just intolerant pigs who need to open our minds and hearts to hardware we dont like?

If I was hiring, and someone said they had a brand intolerance, I would probably bin their C.V. and hire someone who was willing to work with whatever systems / hardware were mandated...

Heh. Unless of course their prejudices matched your own? Wink

And then of course, look at EDS. They were IBM, are Dell and will be HP. Pity the fool.
