    Sometimes I have XP questions and when a google search doesn't help, I want to turn to forums

    But being a mac user most of my life, I don't many ideas on a good XP forum.

    Any suggestions?

    With Macs now Pcs for the most part and using Boot camp and XP perhaps its time for a new forum here at rumors? Such as PC questions or Xp questions.

    Lots of people that use both Macs & Pcs here and I myself have had questions for Xp at times but didnt post here.

    Oh, Man...... you definitely got me

    Well, I clicked on it. Here I was, all psyched to go compare and contrast the different sites, to see how they approach things and to see what it was like over there, but.... it is really similar to Macrumors. I mean, really really similar.

    So eerily similar it is almost like I am reading Macrumors itself.....

    No it's different, completely different.

    In MacRumors, MacRumors is written 7 inches from the top and 1 inch away from the left edges.

    In PCRumors, MacRumors is written 7.05 inches from the top and 0.98 inches away from the left edges.

    There is no comparison. PCRumors come with ideas their own. P for PCRumors baby.

    :D

    Ah, yes. I knew I shouldn't have left my USB-powered pixel micrometer at work last Friday. :D

    But seriously... I myself have been looking for something similar for a bit, and I have not been able to find something like a "PC Rumors." I use the regular manufacturer sites to find repair info, but I haven't been able to find anything with such a really interesting community. One example: I had never tried Vegemite before until I came across a rather interesting discussion in another thread. Trust me, you won't see THAT on Dell.com. (By the way, I actually kinda like it. Pretty salty, but not bad.)

    It's good stuff. If you want something a bit sweeter you can try promite. I personally like the strong nature of vegemite but promite has its merits.

    That first site made me angry! They don't accept gmail accounts for registration! Bwah? :eek:

    But the second seems great.
