    Let's see what XP looks like on Mac's. Can't find a decent picture any where.

    Lol, it just looks so wrong, especially with the default theme. Maybe if it was 'OS X'd up' a bit :p

    Hah. Now thats an idea.

    Who can post a intel mac running windows with enough hacks to make it look as close to OS X as possible.

    Just the idea makes my head hurt as much as the halo mac > xbox > PC > mac history.... aaaaagh.

    I must say it feels and looks really strange running XP on my iMac. Something unfamiliar about it. I agree with the previous poster who said that the default theme in particular looks the worst, I usually drop the desktop picture in favor of a plain color desktop on all of my XP boxes.
    Definitely Dora. I can even tell you what episode, as I'm afraid I know all of them by heart.

    Here's it running in a Parallels VM.

    Note the ballon text that pops up every 2-3 minutes. This is one of the biggest annoyances about Windows - I f*ing know I don't have a virus checker installed.

    Edit: By the way "Fixit machine" is one of my 3yr old's favorites.

    then all the *plinks* with the "your system is now ****" bubbles

    I only use it for checking sites in windows... meh.

    I have a 2.8 Pentium D with 2.5gb of memory and a 7200rpm HD, and your iMac is faster in Windows mode then the real thing I have sitting in the office. Go figure?
