    Looks like Apple is driving the final nail in PC's coffin. Being a Mac only user I'm a bit biased. What do you think?

    Final nail in PC's coffin? It's not even the first one, in fact coffin is not even made yet.
    What it is, is it's Mac turning into a PC.

    LOL... I was wondering that myself...

    I've always enjoyed not wondering if my computer would work or not each day.

    There are a few tools here and there, but sadly 99.9% of any good program is written for PC.

    I'll compile a list and post it in a bit.

    Yeah, UNIX is the real winner.

    Sorry PC guys, I'm not hating on you. I just remember how happy I was when I got my first box (Old Gateway with Windows 98) and how in dismay I was 3 months later when it became a POS. I didn't like having to treat every file as if it contained anthrax.

    This is why I have a $50 pentium 3 machine that just sits all by itself thinking about how lonely it is while it downloads and tests any suspicious files. It's had herpes, gonnhorea, syphilus, AIDS, SARS, ebola and leopard... oh, wait. that last one only seems like a virus. :)

    I may upgrade it though. I have enough parts laying around to whip up a p4 instead. Maaaaajor upgrade.

    I'm not anti-mac, I'm just pro choice. :)

    LOL!!! I love it! I've had the same Powerbook since I started College (I have a masters now btw) and it's still as good as new. I even spilt a glass of red wine in it. Great night.. ah memories : )
