Not a switcher story but one that only reinforces why to go Mac. Have been an Apple user/consumer since the IIe days and have always praised Mac's for the simplicity and ease of use. At work unfortunately, I'm relegated to sit behind a peecee. Incidently, today my underling brought in archaeic Sony Vaio he had bummed off a relative only too eager to get rid of it. He's used nothing but PC's, built his own, yet did not know how to reformat the HD of all things. After razzing him a bit on this, I went to work, searching numerous sites, reading countless forums, whilst he sat and played on-line pool on Yahoo games. Four hours later, and a fattie of a stack of papers printed off the web on my table I was stuck at the C-prompt. All kinds of possibilites as to why such a simple procedure went array, i.e. he has burned copy of Windows ME and me not knowing what the hell I'm doing, but reading countless instructionss on fdisk, D:\Setup.exe, and numerous other DOS commands tempted me to place my fist through the Vaio's screen. I'm not sure if XP is any better but this certainly made me glad I'm a Macintosh user!
