Sentence: Marcy tried to love the iMac, she even had a begrudging admiration for the functionality of Windows--though she felt they hit the point of diminishing returns after Windows 98. But, in her mind, Marcy was a true commadore, believing that the only computer worth using was one you had to program yourself.

Etymology: Commodore was one of the first PCs on the market. Commadore combines the brand with the verb "adore."

I love it and got it immediately, which dates me. Commadore was previously used as a computer name.
