Mac Attack

Now that I am no longer sick it seems as though it was my laptop's turn.
Nope, not a virus this time, rather a full fledged hard drive failure. I'm at the point now when it takes several tries on boot up to even get to my desktop. I was running Windows XP on a laptop that was only about three years old.
I was fed up!
For the first time in my life I walked into an Apple Store today and said "My PC is dying, I can't stand Windows anymore. I want a Mac"
I walked out with an IBook G4.
It's going to take a lot of getting used to, but luckily CJ is an Apple Specialist.
To be my site looks different in Firefox for the Mac, so let me know if anything seems to be wrong.
More of the usual soon....

Sooner or later we will all learn (the hard way of course), how we are kept hostage by these crap PCs ... (including me) - A

Hey, welcome to the wonderful world of Apple! My wife recently won an Apple laptop and it's been VERY interesting trying to get used to it. It'll take some time, but we are definitely looking forward to it! I'm getting tired of the Winblows world myself. Unfortunately, it's my job right now. Ugh, to be independently wealthy. Good luck with the new Mac!

I am also thinking to buy a Mac .. but next to my other PC's. Nowadays when you build websites you need to reckon with all kinds.

Well you'll have to let us know as time goes on what you think of the Mac! Glad your feeling better and you've worked out you computer woes.

PCs are all the same. Its like the difference between foreign and domestic cars. They both have their pluses and minuses. A hard drive can die no matter what type of box it is in.

Operating systems on the other hand aren't created equally. OS X is the latest word and has features and capabilities that have not and may never come to Windows XP. If you don't have any programs that only run under Windows then I think you'll enjoy Mac.

Yeah! Welcome to the light side of the Force! You'll love your new Mac and soon you won't be able to imagine your life without one. Kinda like blogging now that I think about it... hmmm.

I use both the MAC and Windows platforms and find each has some features I like better than the other. For images (see blog) I like the MAC.

Your blog looks fine on both platforms.
