    Hey everyone,

    I am after some Anti-Microsoft games that will run on mac obviously.

    I once had Xgates which was good, but are there any other decent ones you guys know about?

    Cheers

    That was 1997. This is now.

    And besides, Bill Gates wasn't purposely delaying his new operating system so he has time to copy all of the features from Apple's OS back then... or was he?

    Daniel.

    The only one I've ever heard about is Microsoft Winblows. Long out of print, but you might be able to find a used copy somewhere.

    You mean the 'now' where the transition to be mac is being helped by windows now being bootbale on new intel machines and the only one really gaining market share is microsoft!

    Nope. It's a net benefit. Apple sells more machines because people REQUIRED to use Windows for, say, work, or certain programs, can now put Windows on it. Microsoft gains market share because Windows is on it, but Apple's market share also increases because they dual boot OS X, AND because they buy Apple machines.

    It's just a bit of fun those type of games. Heck, I have Windows XP Pro on my iMac Intel.

    Besides, here in NZ, I was hassled and poked fun at relentlessly all through my High School years for owning a macintosh. Seriously, at my last High School which was St. Kentigern College in Auckland, it was like me vs. 1200 PC users. Fortunately at University people tend to have half a brain, and I am alright.

    Sure. Monopolies are bad for everyone but the monopolist.

    If you think the Microsoft Sucks thing is "getting old", then you don't understand what it means to be a Mac User.

    Funny, I thought being a "True Mac User" was about enjoying and using Macs. I'm not sure where Microsoft factors in the equation at all. I guess if you tie your selfworth into a brand, it might, but I figure most right-thinking adults would be beyond that.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Microsoft, however the over-use of terms such as "Micro$oft," "PeeCee," etc. is just lame and immature. Also, although most of MS's software isn't very good (imho), their shining achievement is MS Excel, which imho has yet to be surpassed by anyone.

    Btw, Excel was first made for the Mac.

    You people just don't get it.

    Microsoft isn't just the sworn enemy of Apple, they are the enemy of the entire computing world!! They destroy good companies, swallow up others and all around stiffle the creativity in the industry. In order for the computing world to improve M$ MUST BE TAKEN DOWN.

    Kinda-sorta. The first version of what we now know as Excel was called Microsoft Multiplan. I'm not sure if Multiplan appeared on the Mac before the PC, but I don't think so. I do know that Microsoft released versions of Multiplan for other platforms before it appeared on the Mac (the Commodore 64, for one).

    I bought a shareware version of monopoly for OS9 called 'Cyberopoly'. It was full of tongue-in-cheek techie humor, most of which was squarely aimed at Sir Gates and Microsoft.
    It was actually tastefully done, despite what it may sound like.
    I have no idea whatever happened to that game, post-OSX migration. Might have to look it up when I get home.

    I would kind of agree with you but Excel grew out of the Macintosh version of Multiplan(The only GUI version).

    Microsoft makes cars, buses, and/or trains?

    People wonder why so many Windows users hate the Mac. In large part, it's because of people like you. If you act like a door-to-door evangelist and try to convince people that (1) your way is better and (2) they're going to hell if they don't switch, then (1) you will get sprayed with water (as my Mom did once to a guy who came to try to "save" us and wouldn't leave even when asked) and (2) people will hate you and that for which you stand.

    Enough with the anti-Microsoft statements already.

    Right, sure. The first GUI spreadsheet was Multiplan for the Mac, not Excel. Presumably Excel for Windows and Mac was the next-generation of Multiplan, not an entirely new product, but I suppose only Microsoft knows that for sure.

    Ha, funny. I made a typo.

    Anyways, there is no such thing as too many anti-Microsoft statements. Not until they are wiped out, at least.

    There is such a thing as being too nice, or too forgiving of M$, as seems to be the case in this forum for some odd reason.
