    That actually seems like a really great place to work, I love how they say they try to keep all the computers in good condition in their "Mac Nursery".

    I think I'm getting aroused! :eek: :( :eek:

    Looks very, very nice. :) And it's an excellent write-up, clearly from someone who puts immense pride into their work. It's good to see that. And Office, and particularly the MacBU's version, is one of MS's finest products. :)

    Could be worse. They could assign the Vista development team to take over Messenger for Mac... :(

    You mean they actually stumped up for a colour classic? Man, that's commitment.

    Hmm... What's worse, bad software or never-going-to-appear software...

    How terribly philosophical for eight in the morning. :p

    Just saw this on slashdot. That place looks pretty incredible, though I'd much prefer to work in Apple's Mac lab. :D

    I think it was an issue of MacAddict a few years ago that had some video of going into the MBU.

    No way. I'm a bit claustrophobic and the cables would make me go crazy!
