That kind of gets on my nerves. Yet, Apple seems to have about 5 percent of the market (5 percent would pay).

I voted PAY, dangit.

Hell I not only payed for it I payed for it by buying a whole new computer.

I would say that PC people are voting and they in general are voting for pirate because why would they pay for something they distaste, misunderstand, and do not want in the first place.

I hate the people on the screen savers except for Leo, especially those bitches morgan and megan, and that martin guy deserves several beatings to the head with a piece of heavy minging equipment. They all hate macs and they try to act cool like they actually have friends and they think windows is "bomb diggity" as that ****** martin says.

Get a clue.

If you had watched the show more than once you'd know that Leo, Kevin and Megan are all Mac fans.

Grow up and think a little before you go posting things you know nothing about.

Well, let's see...

I've been watching the show since November 2001. How about you?

Leo is an obvious Mac lover, which is why he's the only one you've noticed.
Megan does segments all the time on Mac software, and chimes in often about Windows deficiencies.
Kevin does the Mac installs at celebrities' homes during the "House Call" segments.

So...put up or shut up, billy...

I paid $69 for it but it's worth the $129. All of it. You will not get ripped off by this price. The only people you're gonna rip off if you pirate is Apple and yourselves later on in time. I suggest you buy it, install OS X.2 and watch it fly. It's done wonders on my iBook!

Those foolish PC users. They aren't even going to get Jaguar, they're just screwing with us. I hope they don't mention the results on the show since they are so ridiculous.

I haven't paid for 99% of my software since '95. Not about to break my streak. I have people depending on me, you know.

Paying for it's the easy way out. Finding it's the challenge.
