    Articles like this just make me wonder why anyone in the world would want to use a PeeCee. :D

    The sad part is that people have gotten so used to it they don't even try switching out anymore because they just think all their computing experiences will be the same.

    Ballmer needs to change his "developers, developers, developers" to "security, security, security". What a fool.

    Only in Windows could you have a security update that makes your computer less secure. ;)

    You know you have issues when a security hole in one of your products deserves a response from Homeland Security.

    I think they should just charge Microsoft for lending a hand towards terror-like activities. They're not making things any safer for Americans, are they?

    And I thought the update that BNSF did - I work tech for them at IBM - was just for corporate servers. I had to work from home this past weekend because our telco switch & servers power was shut down; for updates. Now I truely know why.

    Oh well I'm still stuck on WinXP and this godforesaking DELL.:mad:

    I just hope I have time to purchase an external HDD and lay down a new Mac.

    Some girl at a nearby college is selling an eMac for $600CAN (1Ghz G4 768MB Ram & DVD ROM) I just might bight on that sale.

    1.Because they have games.

    2.They allow you to build your own machine from scratch.

    3.You can get ALOT of raw power for the price of a mac.

    Thats why people including myself still use pc's

    There are games for Mac too, and you can run your peecee games on your Mac via options such as boot camp.

    A nice thing to be sure (I have built several PCs). :)

    You get ALOT of raw power for the price of a PC- check out the Mac Pro. :D

    Different strokes for different folks I suppose. But for me, there is no other computer that I enjoy using as much as a Mac. :)
