Mac is Catholic, DOS is Calvinist

Umberto Eco, brilliant novelist, wrote in 1994 about the competing computer systems. His thoughts were dredged up by Damian Thompson, discussing the perma-craze surrounding each generation of Apple products.
I am firmly of the opinion that the Macintosh is Catholic and that DOS is Protestant. Indeed, the Macintosh is counterreformist and has been influenced by the “ratio studiorum” of the Jesuits.
Now the question: do more Catholics use macs than Protestants?
