It would be THE Home Computer to have.
People using other machines would whinge about monopoly, they would probably have better and cheaper hardware not branded C=, but nobody would care about them and so on.
Rest assured whatever is the top dog in some market it always makes people belonging to others annoyed.
The moral of the story is to use whatever fits _your_ purpose with hardware and software and don't care about what others think, and what is cool.
Also never get emotionally attached to vendors, whatever their business image is, they are run by suits and shareholders, the only reason for their existence is to make profit. If their product is good for you use it, once it is no longer good forget about it. They think the same about the customers, there is no reason to act differently as a customer either.
