My second post.... Hi everyone... I guess I am what you call a "switcher". Although I didn't really need to switch at all. I always had my options open and I used all computers and never had a bias towards one or the other. But after 2 years of dealing with a W2K/NT4 network for the federal government...I got fed up. I sold my Dell 8250 machine (nice machine but same old Windows crap problems) I got this past April and got myself a iMac 1.25 G4 with the 17" widescreen. I have not been happier. My wife got her 12" powerbook 2 weeks ago. We sold our G3 clamshell to get it. The PC and microsoft crap are finally out of my house. I'm rambling on but..... YESSSS THE EVIL IS GONE. If now I could just convince the military to swtich over here at work... I can be just as happy as I am at home. If anyone here can figure out how to get my digital camera CD to mount in my new iMac...I would be even happier Well I hope to learn the lingo you guys use here on the board and I look forward to the discussions. I'm glad I found this one.
