Man -- it sucks. I have officially been without my Mac for a good three hours, ever since I packaged up the MacBook to send it in for repair. Optical drive went out on it, even though everything else was working perfectly with it. Now, I am using a 1GHz Celeron with 384MB RAM. My roomates are all CS majors (I am getting a Liberal Arts degree...) so they wouldn't let me touch it if it had Windows on it. Just some late-night ramble here to say I am officially using Ubuntu "Edgy Eft" which has been giving me some problems... but as long as I can listen to my music and copy my pictures I am content Still is nothing compared to OS X... but I must say better than using Windows in the interim.
