    hi all, just switched!!!.... i downloaded toast titanium and it came in an .exe file!!! I thought toast was only for Mac? Am I correct? how do i install this file???

    As I have just switched, I don't really want to spend $100 on a program yet... although I do prefer original version of products with the box and instruction manual and stuff... Like the way I prefer to buy cd's than download them...

    But that's just me.

    I want to check out this program first though. I've heard it's great. I downloaded this file on Kazaa on my PeeCee. It's probably faulty... does anyone have any idea where I can check out this program??

    Toast isn't an only mac program but you need to download the mac version.

    Not the Pc one. ;)

    Happy switching. :D

    on the contrary, toast titanium, i believe, is also PC software; they just retracted it because it has an odd tendency to really mess up windows computers.

    you are not allowed to discuss warez on this forum; sorry, you shouldn't have mentioned that you downloaded it.

    Re: however

    EXE's cannot and never will work on a mac. it is the product of compiling code on an x86 platform with DOS/windows, and will never work on a PPC with mac or linux.

    you can, however, get toast here.

    it's the first thing that came up on google.

    Yeah in this fourm we can talk about P2P software but never say how we are using it.

    Where to get P2P software - Good
    Using it. - What are you, evil?

    not everyone uses p2p to pirate and commit crimes. Some bands do endorse downloading of thier music. I am firmly against pirating software especially for the mac. I mean if your gonna pay the mac tax for your hardware you shoudl be able to afford the software you need. Or if your gonna pirate something atelast be quite about it. Don't ask why your .exe file doesn't work.

    you're right. we aren't condemning limewire in the slightest. i was just making a joke :)

    if limewire were clearly only for illegal activity, we probably wouldn't be allowed to talk about it either.

    Re: thanx

    thanks man. sorry i reprimanded again after this post, i didn't see you had responded. good luck with your powerbook, i can't say i envy you, but i am very happy for you! they looked very sweet in the store. i would invest in a wireless network ASAP if i were you. you can get a wireless broadband router for about 60$ these days... i have a netgear one, and it works great. i wouldn't be so fast to get apple's, unless you have plenty of cash and you really like how it looks. did your 12 inch come with an airport card?
