 for Amiga Persecution Complex
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  Amiga Persecution Complex
      The disorder suffered by a particularly egregious variety of bigot, those
      who believe that the marginality of their preferred machine is the result
      of some kind of industry-wide conspiracy (for without a conspiracy of some
      kind, the eminent superiority of their beloved shining jewel of a platform
      would obviously win over all, market pressures be damned!) Those afflicted
      are prone to engaging in flame wars and calling for boycotts and
      mailbombings. Amiga Persecution Complex is by no means limited to Amiga
      users; NeXT, NeWS, OS/2, Macintosh, LISP, and GNU users are also
      common victims. Linux users used to display symptoms very frequently
      before Linux started winning; some still do. See also newbie, troll, {
      holy wars, weenie, Get a life!.
