You must be using intelligence in a very subjective manner sir. I will tell you who I see using Macs. Soccer moms, their highschool/college daughters who couldn't think out of a paper bag and those who have more money than sense. Being rich doesn't make you smarter. Hell an entire banking industry proved that. As far as Scientific community using macs. Exactly what research stations were you in lately? The reason I ask is because I happen to frequent these types of facilities and the majority of them are not Macs. In fact Linux seems to making REAL headway there even moreso than windows. Most of the servers in such facilities are already running linux anyway.
Also as for intelligence see comment below.
I think the fact is the majority of mac users aren't smart enough to know or remember any password they had is enough.
