    Never debate me on the benefits of a Macintosh. As R2-B9 can tell you, this is my job. I build and fix PCs running Windows, and install and repair Macintosh computers of all ages. I can make a Mac and PC talk and do things together that make many in my profession shake their heads in disbelief. Shows what their MSCE training was worth.

    So, picking Mace Windu's image wasn't a real exaggeration for me. I loved wearing my Jedi outfit at work recently, and quipped to my clients regarding my skill at fixing their machines: "Now you know why I'm pretty good at this!" :) Computer-speaking, I be the Jedi Master.

    'Tis true--use the computer you can afford and that does the job. Some of us just don't like to fight with our computer. It's like buying a hammer that sags after use or asks if you want to upgrade in the middle of a long job.

    The Mac was the first computer I learned to use, well that Commodore 64 doesn't count. My mom, who has her own advertising agency, lives by them. We have one PC in the office and it's used for internet and book keeping. The poor thing is way out dated but it does its job. so I used Macs until I got to college and worked almost exclusively on PC's while I was there. For 4 years my campus job was to help the poor schmucks who thought you could press a button and everything would go beautifully.

    I have a PC at home, a Mac at work, and really, other than the screen size of the iMac and the incompatibilities with Micro$oft endorsed software, I like my Mac better. I will never buy a PC unless it's a laptop. Why buy when I just get Zach's hand-me-downs. I think he has 3 running comps right now. My PC has pretty much been reduced down to a word processing machine. The only good thing about it is the hard drive.

    They both have their problems, I honestly can't say I totally like either type better than the other. But I am more likely to stand up for Macs.

    I'm waiting to install OSX on this comp until I can get 10.2, though.

    ... the photo-shopping that started the thread was done on a Macintosh computer. And NOW you know the rest of the story. Good day!

    I'm sorry, but every MAC that's been released is the fruitiest piece of crap I've ever seen. I try to never come close to them, but, if I have to, it's usually with a 10 foot pole.

    "fruitiest"? "gay"? Hoot, you need a lesson in acceptable derisive commentary. Now go back to wishing you had the sense to appreciate a quality machine like Macintosh, before one of us smacks the red offa your armor.

    Yeah, that's not acceptable. Consider this your first and only warning.
