    You'd use the word "storms" to describe this? All I see is a little kid and a slightly bigger kid.

    Talk about misuse of punch-words. This ranks up there with music "pirates" and "evil-do'ers".

    he bought the ultimate w/bill gates' signature (699 HKD) & resold it immediately for 2,000 HKD

    699 HKD = 90 USD = 105 CAD

    FTW

    the title of this thread is very misleading, is the OP the "extremist"? A more accurate title would have been:

    "Meh, one dork with a sign buys a copy of visita"

    I'm sorry, but why buy it and not use it? He just gave MS some money and increased their sales figures. :confused:

    He's a not-so-extreme extremist.

    I know, here I was expecting a real Mac Extremist to have gone in there guns blazing and smashing all of the Vista discs with a sledgehammer. ;) :D :cool:

    It sure does... Especially his two fingers on his left hand that are holding the Vista package. :confused:

    Although I doubt it...a newspaper wouldn't be posting fake pictures of something as unimportant as this (compared to tons of other issues), and especially not from a newspaper that is quite widely read there.

    The way he's holding it I wonder if that's a real copy of Vista anyway. Probably a shrink wrapped display box.

    Kids? That sounds incredibly odd coming from you. You should be able to tell that the one is over 20.

    All I can say is walao! That seems strange to buy Vista and profess your love for Mac OS X.

    Maybe the guy is just holding the copy of Vista for someone who needs to bend down and tie his/her shoes???

    The pudgy one doesn't look like a uni student, and the other one didn't look too old either. It's kind of hard since his face is pixellated.

    Maybe we should just ask lOUDsCREAMEr how old he is, since lOUDsCREAMEr is obviously the kid with the glasses holding the Vista box.

    When I first saw him, I thought that he was about 27, which made me wonder how he could still be a uni student. Of course, if he's always being so "extreme "instead of attending classes, he could be in uni until he's 40.

    I think it's the box that looks more fake. The lighting seems a bit off on it, and there's that outline around his fingers. The signs look kinda fake too. It's like someone put too much contrast in the entire thing, either while shooting or in post.
