Don't get me wrong, I love my Mac, but I just long for the day when something waaaaay out there in COOL LAND comes to the Mac-using world.<br><br>If you have a PC, you can buy a fancy new case and replace your nasty ugly grey box - good for a few days of joy; unfortunately, Mac users already have a cool case on every Mac that has sold since the original iMac, so we're left out of that little "pick-me-up." <br><br>With a PC, you can constantly find a piece of software that improves upon another piece of software you were using that just wasn't quite right. Unfortunately, Mac software is so well written that it's really not that unthinkable to use a piece of software for many years with no interest at all in switching to something else, let alone try to find something better. Upgrades are few and far between, because they are written correctly to begin with.<br><br>With a PC, they are made so poorly/cheaply that many PC users are CONSTANTLY fixing their machine - good for taking up spare time on a weekend. Unfortunately, I haven't had any hardware problems since the original G3 was introduced and even then, it took me all of 15 minutes to fix it. Other than adding a new RAM module to a new computer every few years, I never open the case.<br><br><br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I've seen some good commercials by fast food restaurants over the years, and that stuff still tastes like greased up butt to me. <br><br>Think about it this way, your computer always WORKS. Now you can do "non boring" things with the computer like its intended to. Use new fun software, play some games, program something, build a new website... I don't know, the possibilities are limitless.<br><br>Maybe I'm sounding like a bitch here, but I don't get near as much time with my mac as I'd like to... and probably a lot less than most of you, and to hear you guys say you are bored with it? What the heck are you talking about?? Maybe you need to spend some time working in a soup kitchen or something really boring<br><br>
I agree. I switched to Apple back in 99 with my first mac being a blue/white G3 350. Since then, no looking back. This weekend I spent all day Saturday with my nephew down at Vanderbilt. He has a Dell laptop running WinXP and I can tell you, it is nothing but pure ugly.<br><br>Bored with my mac and/or OSX? No way!! I love using it and when I see OS9 or below, I think "ugh, how ugly!"<br><br>iTunes to me is the greatest thing out there. Case in point: When I was playing with my nephew's Dull laptop (don't worry, I washed my hands afterwards! ) I clicked on the X to close his music player (can't recall the name of it, but I don't think it was the MS one) and he was like "dude...don't do that! I have to enter in all the songs again. It totally sucks!" oooppss!! Sorry!<br><br>Bored with OSX? HA!<br><br>
