    Allllright. Now that we've covered all that (?) Can we get back to the topic? lol I really don't think this conversation is helping anyone. Too many people feel too strongly about the subject (as you can tell with those really long replys!) So, lets say if you have anything to help the topic starter, go ahead and reply. Otherwise. Lets not [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Ty, Andrew. Back on topic: It may have slipped by before because it was at the tail end of my post, but schloaty, if you need any help or you want someone to look through your hijack this log file, then feel free to PM me or you can post the logfile here. Good luck! I hate it when there's something that just doesn't let itself be removed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    Well, the Smitrem thing didn't fully remove the program, but at least that stupid ballon isn't popping up from my window's bar. That's a plus, I guess...But it's still here. Also, I couldn't get to the kilbox webpage - might be down or something. I'll try again later.

    What software companies have forgotten is that the job of the OS is to GET OUT OF THE WAY. It's your content that matters... and the OS is there to help you access and manipulate that content as naturally as possible. That's it. The desktop is an outdated idea, and there's been progress to move beyond it in various places like MIT, but nothing has really caught on (and Microsoft's business tactics are probably partly responsible there).

    Anyone see Minority Report? They consulted people who develop this kind of thing when they made the movie. Remember the computer interface? The OS was invisible... you had only your content and a way to utilize it. I don't know how viable the gloves were as an input device (kinda like learning sign language to use your computer)... but that was a pretty good example of where we could be going if we'd stop thinking in icons (abstractions). As we gain more and more processing power, we require less and less abstraction to "compress" the way our content is represented.

    I agree that Apple puts faaar more study into usability than Microsoft (in fact there's a very short list of things Microsoft has actually developed rather than bought or hijacked)... but they all need to be reminded that they belong behind the scenes, in my opinion. It seems like the Unix/Linux world is ahead as far as that's concerned, but I haven't used them enough to know, really.

    EDIT: Err, sorry, I guess I've just contributed to the hijacking...

    It all depends on what you are trying to do. Obviously MAC is good for video/animation, but it sucks when it comes to games. Until games exclusively use opengl (which I hope they don't because hackers love to abuse opengl), until DirectX is gone, PC reigns king for playing games.

    Owning a mac for porn? Well first off it isn't the OS that determines the quality of a video, it is how that video was compressed. Plus spending $3,000+ on a machine for lust is a waste, find your match out there and get married!

    MACS are like cars. You drive it/use it until it goes to the graveyard and buy a new one. I like to be able to build my own machine and upgrade/repair my own machine without having to drop it off at an Apple store. No thanks!
