An operating system to run your
computer for you. If you are moderately computer-savvy, e.g., you understand that buying and installing anti-virus protection, internet firewall software, spy-dectection software, etc., actively
own computing environment, e.g. you don't use ANY vendor's email client software, open attachments with
.exe, etc., don't subscribe to file-sharing networks like
shareaza which put BIG FUCKING HOLES in any other
security software you may have
installed, then you probably
all the horrid "crashes" reported by the naysayers.
If, on the other
hand, you're an unemployed software programmer
whose resume was shit-canned by Microsoft and you have
nothing better to do with your
day than find "holes" in the OS, you'll probably
find what you're looking
for. As for me, I like
to look at beautiful (a-hem) pictures and movies, keep track of my finances, get information off the internet, and just generally have
a GAY ol' time on the internet. Windows XP couldn't be better or easier to use.
And P.S. Will somebody
please kill and bury Quicktime
and Apple? Talk about
way past their
a Jaguar competing in an Acura and Lexus world...nobody's saying
the Jaguar's aren't pretty...it's just that the Lexus will actually GET YOU THERE TOO!!!
1) I bought one of the first MAC's ever. No...NO...I
did NOT buy a LISA!!
2) Steven Jobs is a GOOD guy, Bill Gates is a BAD guy. And their
respective bank account balances clearly
prove the point!!!
3) No one will hire me because I refuse to accept
the project manager's directives. So, instead, I've installed LINUX to facilitate my hacking into
WINDOWS-based PCs, just to show how suck-ey their
god-damned OS really is.
4)The Tower of Babel
is infinitely more desirable than a single, standardized approach, if you really care about instruction sets, for Christ's sake!!!
5) Let's win the marketing
war by cornering the education market, so all those poor school-kids can fuck around
with apple software for ten years until they graduate into
the REAL world.
