    can you say otherwise?
    anyway, I don't wanna grow this into a fight, so nothing personal.
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    An education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

    Hey, if that's all you feel it's good for then great. Obviously, many people don't agree. Also, I like Chevy over
    ford... As Ford can only be used for moving cow poop down a steep hill. LOL Someone else will come along and say the same thing about Chevy, Dodge, Toyota, Honda........
    This is what I'm saying. You *and others* think MAC is awesome. Others don't. Those that don't, should be able to come here and talk about PCs. Just like someone recently here asked for some help on a driver for another OS. I don't recall seeing anyone jump on him about switching to mac though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] That's all... I hope the starter of this topic got the help he needed. And if others need help with their COMPUTERS of any "race" they feel they can come here for help without getting pooped upon.

    Oh, and your right, it's nothing personal. It's just computers.

    Well, let's admit it: a comment like that and you deserve it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Besides, everyone knows that Linux is far superior. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Just to have my propaganda thrown in (because that's what everyone else is doing! lol) Linux is better because it's stable like Mac OS, it costs NOTHING (unless you pay for a corperate edition with lots of extras, but you can always legally get it for free,) there are very few viruses that you need to worry about with Linux, you can pick your flavor (SOOO many choices,) etc etc. If it wasn't secure, then why would businesses and admins use it as a firewall? Besides, then you don't need to worry about hardware differences (eg MAC, PC use different CPUs.)

    Remember when you're flaming: "PC = windows" is wrong. Have a nice day. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    addition: To remain germane, if you're having problems, you can feel free to PM me/post your hijack this log here and I'll take a look-see.

    Well I hope it's more stable then Mac OS... Mac OS in my experience is far less stable then Win XP.

    Eh, atleast a few years back when I tried Linux out, there was still troubles finding drivers for all the hardware.
