I use a PC, but only because that's what I have. I don'[t prefer one over the other, although I am more familiar with PCs. Please don't kill me! :lol:
I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?

Your pleas for mercy fall on DEAF EARS! In fact, I am wearing earplugs, for good reason, too... *Starts to blast country music in Theremin's ears* Die, Fiend! A horrible, merciless, torturous death! MUAHAHAH!

(Now while you suffer, I'm going to go listen to GH)

I though the Mac/PC comparason has ended ten years ago....
This sounds like the question: which color is better?
It's just a matter of personal needs and tastes.

I just love the PC hardware, with his open architecture and low price.
And I like to be able to change just any piece of hardware in my PC-case if I want to.
In Holland, the Mac is not as popular as in the USA anyway. That means we also have troubles finding upgrades and software for it.


But hey: let's laugh a little bit... :twisted:

I admit: this is stupid, but I couldn't resist.... don't take it seriously!

Came across this little jewel which has been taking up a few bytes of space on my hard drive for--geez, I don't even know how long. (I have a LARGE directory entitled "jokes," and the ones that I keep get dated--when I got them and from whom, when I forwarded them and to whom. But this one doesn't have a "received" date.)

To get an idea of how old it is, check the system requirements. 4MB RAM?? Yah, right...

Anyway, hope y'all enjoy.

A message for the veteran Macintosh user, from the people at Microsoft:

Have you felt left out of recent personal computer developments? Does it feel like the advances of the computer world are passing the Macintosh by?

You've probably been using the Macintosh for a number of years now. You've gotten used to the idea that a computer doesn't have to have a cumbersome awkward interface based on obscure cryptic commands. And you've grown accustomed to the user interface standard to which all the other user interfaces are compared. An interface that remains consistent across a variety of applications that really do give you the power to be your best.

But recently, all the attention seems to have moved away from the Macintosh. Developments in the IBM-PC world have overshadowed the enhancements being made to your favorite computer. Macs are no longer in the spotlight, no longer the leading edge of computing technology that they once were.

Or so it seemed to much of the world. Until now.

Announcing, at last, a revolutionary new system that gives you even more consistency, compatibility, and capability than you've ever known before.

Announcing...

Yes, all the power you've come to know on your IBM PC will soon be available on the Macintosh, too. Get all the power and function of Windows applications like Microsoft Word for Windows and Microsoft Excel for Windows, right there on your Macintosh. Now the Macintosh user will come to know what users of Windows on the IBM PC have known for some time now: that a powerful graphical icon-based user interface will give you even more power to be your best than you've ever had before!
