    I say Apple even though it is technically "Command"

    my reasoning: why not say Apple? The best computer company in ZE WORLD!

    Command if i'm talking to mac users,
    Apple if i'm talking to someone new to the mac, because they can find the little apple easier than it is to explain the funny shape is "command"

    I say apple because I wasn't using a mac back when command was more commonly used.

    um, "windows" is the product-name for the OS developed by "Microsoft". If you want a name based off of the same convention it would have to be "OSX" or "System 10"...
