    I'm curious. How many of you were using windows for the first time when you installed it on your Macs with bootcamp? What were your first impressions? How often do you use it?

    Hahahah! Finding someone who's never touched a Windows PC is harder than finding a virgin in a West Texas whorehouse who's never touch a youknowhat!

    Not me.

    As soon as I installed Win XP in my Mac, I realised even Apple can't make a decent job of Win XP. I deleted it. :D

    Haha. Well maybe I should rephrase my question.. How many of you are using Windows as one of your main operating systems for the first time through bootcamp? I'm sure a lot of you have seen it before, or messed around with it before.. but for how many of you is this the first time owning it and using it on a somewhat regular basis.

    Well, unfortunately akadmon is probably right, almost everyone have used Windows at some point before, so any true "virgin" stories are probably scarce.
    Personally, I had a PC running Win 95 until '99, and I haven't owned a computer with Windows since. I have used it occasionally though, so I more or less knew what I was jumping into when I installed XP. However, about an hour after my first install, having just surfed the 'net just like usual, some annoying windows popups started to appear, and when I clicked them to try and make them go away, more came! And all of a sudden there was constant pop-ups with (very) lightly dressed young ladies, and some popups that kept telling me I had X number of viruses and had to go to some website to get rid of them for X number of $.
    Back to OS X, remove partition, re-create partition, re-install windows, install antivirus, no web surfing.
    I now almost never use it, for obvious reasons.
    It sucks ;)
