    I was just forwarded this email concerning Examsoft's SofTest test-taking software that everyone seems to be using:

    I just received this from ExamSoft:

    Dear Administrator,

    ExamSoft has completed its evaluation of SofTest's compatibility running on Mac Book and Mac Pro where Windows XP has been installed utilizing Boot Camp. We are pleased to confirm all SofTest functionality successfully operates in this environment.

    Clients have the option of allowing Exam Takers to use SofTest with Mac Book or Mac Book Pro OR ExamSoft can block SofTest from operating in this environment if your institution does not allow or provide support for Mac's.

    The default setting for SofTest will be to operate in this environment so if you want to allow Exam Takers to use Mac Book or Mac Book Pro you're all set.

    If you DO NOT want SofTest to operate in this environment, please contact ExamSoft Client Support PRIOR to opening fall registration and we will modify the SofTest version distributed to your Exam Takers.

    Well, that's great for all the law-school students who want Mac computers. Congrats.

    Why this part, though? Bill Gates doesn't care what machine (Apple, Dell, HP, Sony, BYO) you install Windows on. As long as you legally own a license, he gets his money.

    Technically, well actully it's quite simple, you're still using Windows. Therefore, you are still using Microsoft software. Furthermore, Microsoft and Bill Gates only make money on the operating system, Windows, which you will have to purchase. So I guess you get to use Mac hardware, but really it makes abosulely no difference to Microsoft. If you chose to buy retail rather than an OEM version of Windows they will make even more money than they would have if you had of purcahsed a PC notebook.

    lol-whatever...I suppose a Mac is a Mac. :p
