As a self-described young creative, James Coleman says he and his people have little use for a Windows computer these days.

He’s a popular but largely unsuccessful graphic designer that calls a French Quarter hotdesk an office.

No milk in this man’s coffee, he shoots from the hip and asks questions later.

Which is why the 29-year-old paused earlier this year when he went to throw his old Packard-Bell from the North Betoota’s Astoria Boulevard pedestrian bridge into oncoming traffic – he’d just treated himself to a new MacBook Pro.

“I thought, ‘What would I play Age of Empires on? It’ll go on my Mac somehow but fuck me it’s a pain,'” he said.

“So I stopped myself,”

“Rather than hoik that heavy old bitch off the bridge and through the windscreen of a speeding Volkswagen, I carried it home and played a death match. I knew I’d made the right choice when my Elite Teutonic Knights carved through the Aztecs like the common cold did. I will keep my Windows rig forever.”

The Advocate reached out to the creators of the popular strategy game regarding rumours suggesting that the game may come to Macintosh in the new year – but have yet to receive a reply.

More to come.
