Quite a few of them do. I shouldn't put that on all Mac users. My apologies. But some that I've ran into do. Hell, a guy stopped talking to me when I told him that I built a pc and put Windows XP on it. Well, pardon me for being used to only one OS. I've used Macs a few times and I'm just not used to them.

Sig removed since I no longer post here.

I know more about Windows machines than Mac's, and ive had to fix my computer so many times you can't really call it the same computer!
Ive only owned one Mac but it NEVER EVER CRASHED ONCE IN ITS ENTIRE OPERATING EXISTENCE, however both of the Windows machines we've had have crashed heaps of times. one of our computers was like Windows 2.0 and this one has got XP and has crashed sooooo many times

and when we had our Mac I must say it was really easy to use

i own a pc, and i work at a school with 400 PCs, BUT we also have 100 Macs, and for about the first 3 weeks of school this year we had nothing but rouble with the Macs (i was in the Mac labs 80% of my day) and all of our Macs are at least 500mhz, i admit it i am biased, but i am biased towards the better machine, people vote with their wallets and if Macs were sooo much better then they would have 90% of the market share and PCs would only have 10%, but it is not so, therefore ima stick with what i know, and what runs the best for me, and that is a PC

Whatever I'm using at the time (I'm a slut that way).

No matter where you go, it's Campy/Shimano, Titanium/CarbonFiber/Aluminum/Steel, Mac/Pc.

I really miss the days when there was an argument.

Anybody know where I can get a Windows for Workgroups Skin to run on a Mac OS?

I think a lot of you guys that have crashed apples might have done so because you where unfamiliar with the OS, not because it's unstable. Playing in OSX is much different then a windows envirement. I'm not saying your stupid, but spend an hour in a unix envirement and try to get something to work if you don't have a good grasp on it. You'll crash that too.

First of all, I multitask all the time. with 512 mb of DDR Ram, I don't have a problem with that. And saying that Mac OS X and OS 9 don't multi task is like saying that A Ford Escort is better than a Maybach 750. It's not true. I have problems multitasking in any form of Windows. 95 all the way through XP. Macs have always been able to multitask. But most people don't need to multitask, so they don't.

And, you have had up to 10 windows open at a time?? is that windows, or Applications? Because I have had at least 15 applications open and running at a time. You need to know that a window is different than an application and a window takes no talent to use.

The older computer
2.53ghz Intel e7200 // 4gb HyperX // EVGA 9800 GTX 512mb // Win7
