Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?
most of your life? ...man i'm old, reminds me of DOS, anyone remembered using that? and 5.25 floppies? heck, i'll be surprised if someone here even remembers using cp/m or a pdp-x or even multics something.
Mac. Never played much games on my computer but the ones I've played came out for Mac too so no problems there.
And real men plays console anyways (real women too, just dosen't sounds as good though).
Well, I've got shitloads of experience with Macs, I'm 19 and have been using Mac for 14 years.
As for the nemesis, Micorsoft I have nuttin' but laughter to give 'em.
For instance Vista has copied a lot of MacOsX (hmm might start shortening it to MoX) and I've heard that the new Microsoft "Ipod", Zune isn't compatible with Vista. Anyone knows if this is true? If it is it's just plain stupid on their part if not, well it was funny while it lasted.
I'm currently using Windows Vista. Now, while multiple people I know have said it sucks, I'm actually finding no problems with it so far (knock on wood). It's been running fairly smoothly and is pretty <3 I like it much better than XP. All the little tweaks are great ^^
I'm running vista too, although im not sure the timer stop crack is working since although its been stuck on 29 days remaining for about a week and a half, it keeps asking me to activate.
Anyway, it doesnt run as smoothly on my pc as XP did, even with it using my 1GB pendrive as extra memory. My setup is a 2.6ghz celeron, 1GB ddr2 ram, 128mb radeon 9550 running dual 17" crts and a 300Gb sata hard drive, and vista runs a bit sluggish even with some aero features disabled. I assume its because of my processor, the lowest rated component of my PC. I did notice a slight speed up when disabling my Avast! Anti virus (its a pity AVG doesnt work with vista yet)
I love the cool aero feature when you click a button in the quicklaunch bar and all the windows go sidways 3D and you can choose which one you want, and i love how you can stretch a video over two screens (in xp one screen remained black) so playing multiplayer xbox through my tv card is way cool since you can get a screen each.
Other than that, vista isnt much of an upgrade to XP really (unless you have an uber next generation graphics card that needs directX 10). Now, if only linux could play halo natively.... then we'd have an operating system worth using.
