Its a sad sad day. My wife's grandfather got a Dell after using Macs most of his "computer" life. Its not that he stopped liking Macs, its just he saw he could get a complete Dell system for $300. And I was to set it up for him. He had used an eMac (before that he had a first generation iMac.) I took that off his desk and put the 17" CRT monitor in its place (although he was pissed to find out that Dell's 17" monitor only has a 15" screen.) He said "Wow! So thats a Dell!" I told him no, that was just the monitor and lugged the rest of the monstrosity out of the box. He didn't seem too happy with that. So I got everything plugged in (with him saying more than once "wow... thats a lot of wires") and started his computer up. So he started to get excited again and wanted to see the internet. I told him it wasn't ready yet, I had some more work to do. So I started up the computer, jumped through its loops and restarted it. Answered "I agree" to no less than about 500 EULAs. Then both Dell's software and Norton's Internet Security suite got pissed at me because neither could connect to the internet (he uses Earthlink Dialup that wasn't yet installed.) Finally I got rid of them (although Norton kept complaining off in the corner.) Finally I got Earthlink installed and Norton immediately started downloading virus definitions which took about an HOUR. So then I had to install his printer... this has always been my pet peeve about Windows. I dislike popup windows, as everyone does. But I consider those insidious informational balloons in the corner to be just as bad as popups. Why is it whenever you plug a friggin' printer into a Windows computer it has to pop up and tell you that its installing like 20 drivers?? Its only one printer!!!! And all the while Norton kept popping up to tell me that its "allowing" something to install... I don't care! Why is "annoy the hell out of the user" the default setting on these things???? So I finally finished with his computer and showed him how to get onto the internet. He asked if his computer would get any faster, I told him it wasn't. His old eMac (I do believe it was probably a G3, I didn't check) smoked the hell out of this brand new Dell. Something tells me he'll be switching back real soon. Sorry guys, I had to rant somewhere. Ignore me, I'm bitter. I gotta say though, I love the hell out of my iBook right now.
