Umm humor.

A tad cliched.

That's it, I'm not going to buy a Windows PC. :eek:

I thought the column was good. Not very funny, didn't smile once, but all the points that should be there was there, and I agree with most of them...

And I've had Safari crash on me enough times that not even this was amusing: "This program has encountered a problem and must be shut down. Do you want to tell Microsoft about it? Or do you just want to let out a blood-curdling scream, bury your face in your hands, lament that you didn't save your work, and then start over from scratch?"
The only difference, of course, is that Safari never actually took down the rest of my system, and all that really was lost was a number of unread tabs... annoying, but not exactly enough to "let out a blood-curdling scream"... :D

But, anyhow, it's nice to see another switcher, no matter what the reason is for the switch... ;)

That's it, I'm buying an Amiga!

Oh dang....Good thing I have room on my desk for a windows machine. I'm going to order a new desktop from Compaq today.

Umm humor.

yeah - sorry 'bout that. I just changed the tag to be "Humor" as this obviously applies there more...

Someone mentioned the Amiga. Damn I miss that computer. My Amiga 4000 ran Mac emulation software faster than a real Mac, back in the day. I finally switched to Mac in '97 when C= couldn't run themselves further into the ground.

Still wish someone would port Faery Tale Adventure. :(

oh, it doesn't matter. people ignore the humor tag anyways, and then foam at the mouth over something ridiculous...

Hey c'mon; the LAST line is funny.

The link above takes me to a newer column.

Here (http://reasongonemad.com/columns/2006/0201apple.asp)'s the one we're talking about... :)

Thanks Mitthrawnuruodo - I was looking around, saying "What the hell does this have to do with Macs?" until I saw the lefthand side. ;)

This article is pretty funny though - but even if he did mean it to be in humor, he never explained WHY he's not getting a Mac.

Actually, reading this makes me want to order a new Mac. My MacBook Pro is going to be obselete in three weeks!
