My Missouri state college, Northwest Missouri State University has provided a computer in the room. Unfortunately it is a 900-something MHz Gateway It has USB, so I can use my digital camera and printer, so I can't justify dropped another $1000+ for a Mac when I'm struggling to make tuition. The gateway is nearly fully functional, and it is now folding for the 'rumors team (which is one hell of a lot faster than on a macintosh), but the GUI (Windows 2K Professional) is only slightly less painful than a sharp stick in the eye. I am left with two options: 1. Request that some kind individual will give me a mac that can run OS X resonably, or 2. Hope that there is a way to make Windows 2000 Professional look more aqua-ish. So, if any of you windows users out there can aid me in a little GUI makeover, some help ASAP would be great. I don't know how long the wallpaper (err.... desktop) of the flat-panel iMac will stave off the insanity.
