    The guy is an Apple fanatic and isn't slamming them any more then any of the rest of us would.

    That sounds about right, he's just showing his frustration with Apple - we've all done that before. And who isn't waiting for Apple to break the 2 GHz barrier....:D

    Don't give Bill Amend a hard time. He loves Macs and uses a blue G3 to produce his FoxTrot strips, where he does "affectionate parodies" of Apple. He even uses Project Builder! Read his Macworld interview. Hey, Bill. Are you a MacRumors member?

    I love it! Fox Trot has always been in-the-know about this stuff. I am totally in with the 1.5GHz quip. Good stuff! Probably not a lot of generic PCers out there would understand the comic as well as we do. :)

    He did a similar joke about having Unix underneath Mac OS X. It mentioned the chmod command, so it was even more of an inside joke than this one. I haven't been able to find a copy of that strip on the web.

    Foxtrot is awesome. I remember at one point the mother was buying apple computers (imacs I think) all over the place because they were so cute. Great stuff.
