I went as far as moving the Start bar on my work computer to the left side, since I'm so used to having my Dock on the left side on my Mac at home. It's funny watching anyone else use my computer, because they just cannot stand to have it on the left. At one point, our internal IT even told me I needed to move it back to the bottom, to which I responded that if they got me a Mac to do my work, it wouldn't be a problem.<br><br>----<br>Stupidity is like nuclear power.

Nerdy ~ Not getting the joke when Stewart first asked him "What's your pet's name?" <br><br>Slightly More Nerdy ~ He doesn't have pets, even though his kids have told him they want one.<br><br>Really Nerdy ~ I think he finally got it when Stewart asked him "What was your first pet's name?" 'cause he answered "That's not my pass word." And he sounded a little annoyed.<br><br>Ultra Nerdy ~ I explained to Little Sister why Vista was . . . . She got it. Then we pulled up the covers on our so-so beds at the Comfort Inn down in Edinburg and said goodnight.<br><br>And woke up to Imus' BOR rant . . . . . . been gone so long, I'm disoriented. Wrong room, I'll take a left at the light . . . <br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue] Talk about things and nobody cares . . .</font color=blue>

The way I saw that was that Gates gave up and succumbed to Apple for innovations . From-what I could tell was that MS is working on much larger applications other then Desk Top Computing , maybe off into outer space stuff ?<br><br>
I find Bill Gates to be an unsual character...a nerdy character for sure, but unusual nonetheless. The dichotomy is Microsoft rips off Apple at every turn, bullies everyone they can and they still have a virtual monopoly. Then there is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that we all know does great charity work. He must have some freaked out karma going on there.<br><br>And to think people are paying him $399 a pop for Vista Ultimate. When Leopard comes out I won't feel so bad about plunking down $129 for an OS that will still have more advanced features than their top dog. And furthermore I...oops...sorry...preaching to the choir.<br><br>Only the über-nerds are buying Vista at the moment anyway. We have it running on a 3GHz P4, 2 GB RAM, 256MB ATI card in our IT department and its a little sluggish with all the bells and whistles turned on. And its user experience is still a pain in the butt compared to OS X. Sorry...preaching to the choir again. <br><br><br>
