I have a usb portable hard drive that was having disk problems. Win2K could not even see the drive, not reformat, etc. Before turning the drive into a frisbee and buying another on ebay I tried hooking it to my mac (Cube, 1.2G, 10.3). Cube disk utility (finally) saw the drive- I erased it and then reconnected to the PC - PC saw it, I deleted the partition and reformatted and now am able to use it... Moral: Macs (especially 10.3) Rule, PCs Suck (this is news?) When I can fix a PC disk better on my mac the game is over. I stopped using a Mac at work under 10.2 last year b/c it's networking was lame and was hard to integrate w/ a PC ruled work environment. Now, as soon as I can afford a laptop (maybe for christmas) I'm going to start using it at work again Woo Hoo!
