vs [PC] s (as in MicrosoftCompatible) -- [Microsoft-Compatible wins|http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1656] (for some value of winning) if you consider this a war about hardware architectures, though that makes little sense as "Mac" has meant at least two entirely unalike hardware architectures during the brand's existence, and is a subject area that 95% of loyal [Apple] users have no expertise in. To them, the subject of the war is an ill-defined derivative of user experience and/or interface/appliance design ethos, and that war is going as strong as ever.

These are not mutually exclusive. Even the most long-running [vi|Vim] vs [Emacs] FlameWar will be broken off temporarily so its participants can engage in a [Linux] vs [Windows] FlameWar (on the side of [Linux], of course).
Time does not settle all ReligiousWar~s. Some withstand age. The ~BetaMax vs VHS war is still going strong, despite not only ~BetaMax having effectively lost in the market (even though it was clearly superior), but both technologies being displaced by optical storage anyway. Others do fizzle out, such as the structured programming vs GoTo war, or the war over implementing systems in assembly language vs highlevel ProgrammingLanguage~s.
