Funny....

Although my PC based computers always crashed 10 times more than any Mac I ever had.... but given it was harder to fix if there was a problem.

AMEN!

My XP machine hasn't locked up once in over 8 months, I love this thing even though it's a resource hog. That doesn't really matter when you have a gig of ram though

I love PCs, I love Microsoft. I hate sitting in weekly security meetings reviewing patches to apply to our corporate desktop environment...but hey it pays the bills and everyone on our team makes big bucks trying to catch up to all the security holes and viruses that are rampant in Windows NT, 2000 and XP OSes

at home when I want to do creative stuff or real work, I fire up the mac

the only reason there are microsoft security holes is hackers spend mad time finding them. see, even hackers dont like macs.

I love using my mac. That boy was crazy Macs are easy to use. The OS won't let you delete anything important unless you know how to enable the root user. If you know how to do that, well, then you deserve to blow up your OS.

As untrue as this commercial was, i was rolling on the floor listening to it. It was one of the funniest things i've ever seen. Now, for the WinXP version....

PS. Ernie, you love microsoft? are you nuts? Cupertino, CA is where all the good stuff happens. 1 Infinite Loop to be exact. Look it up...

Hey Martin,

no you misunderstand. I love microsoft and all the twits that use it to try and do mission critical work with it....when servers crap out, viruses run amok, data gets destroyed,..people on my team get big f*n payola to fix it. It pays for the house, truck, motorcycles, vacations and other toys

If people used macs, shit I'd probably have some middle of the road IT job only making about a third of what I currently do
