Got nothing against Macs myself.... in fact started out on a Mac Classic (long time ago in the stone age for you youngsters). Anyway had a collision with a PowerMac and buggy OS upgrade that about drove me insane, so jumped ship to the PC crowd. We've been building our own from parts ever since..... kind of like ordering from the menu at a Chinese Joint, " Ill have the case and powersupply from collumn A, mainboard and processor from B, video card from D, etc.
Then naturally, some "Microserf" decides that we need a new operating system and all those high-zoot components you gathered over the last couple of years are no longer supported in the "new operating system" and none of the drivers work properly so you get to start over again!
But there is an up-side.... PCs cost less, and the boys in Redmond are trying their best to make Windows work as close to Mac OS as humanly possible without getting their pants sued off, so the learning curve is getting steeper!
