    Watching the first 2 matrix movies in expectation of Revolutions release in just over two weeks, I realized something...

    The Machines are like Windows, and Zion is like the Macintosh world. The Machines are much larger, evil (wielding humanity for their own gain), and easily hacked. The city of Zion is small, the last refugee of humanity, and the Machines are completely unable to hack it even with great resources at their disposal because the system is built stable from the ground up, while the machines have one layer piled upon another dating back to the original AI system developed by humans.

    Any other similarities?

    That The Matrix itself was built and re-built but they couldn't destroy the major flaw in each version.

    They got more complex, different every other way but same basic underlying flaws (coding).

    The architect talks in riddles and rymes that your not suppose to understand (most windows manuals) ;)

    Also, the part about a systemic anomaly (virus) that will cause a cataclismic system failure and there is nothing short of the virus giving in that they can do to stop it. Sounds a bit too familiar... :D :( :( :p ;) :mad: :rolleyes: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Although I really believe that Mac OS is more tidy and organized than Zion.
    I guess in Revolutions the machines will storm Zion. Prepare for Microsoft´s rage!

    We need guns! Lots of guns!

    The Macintosh community is filled with sexy people like Carrie-Anne Moss and Lawrence Fishburne while the Windows community is filled with ugly people in suits like Agent Smith.

    Hey, if iTunes would come around the corner, that would be a so terribly hot program - in the Matrix iTunes would be a super model!

    Also, the machine world is rapped up in one virus (Neo), and before it can settle that virus, another virus is emerging, Smith...
