    Here is an interesting writing, i found this at Macslash .

    "The more you use a Mac, and the more of its secrets you learn (and the bizarre truth is that although simple tasks are designed to be much simpler on the Mac than on a PC, the Mac is also much more deeply and pervasively capable of being tweaked and customized and automated and shortcutted), the more you will like it. This is exactly, radically, totally the opposite of what happens in Windows, where every damn thing you learn after the first ten minutes will make you hate it more and more violently.
    "

    Edit : I think i posted this on a wrong section, please move this accordingly. thanks

    Here is the news I have heard from the grape-vine (a person who networks and is a major M$ supporter). He says about the new opperating system that it is suppose to be 128 bit. Intel is apparently developing a 128-bit processor that is NOT backward compatable with older hardware or software. M$ is developing a 128-bit Windows version from the ground-up that will NOT have legacy support for 16 or 32-bit software. The thing is, that M$ will have this in the workings for many years, and during that time when they are testing it, many companies will probably find work-arounds which M$ will incorperate into the OS, which will once again, make it buggier than ever.

    Here is another thing I found very funny posted on the Symantec site:
    Notice how the website itself makes fun of microsoft by putting quotes around "Microsoft-approved". This is the future of Windows. Soon, microsoft will keep the volume map on a server that you must log onto before you can start Windows;-)

    a little long, but decent. nothing of real substance though. it did say all the right things... "just worked" "powerbook" etc etc.
