There's a colleague of mine who has been a rabid Windows user for all his life (well, not really, since he's in his 50s, but you know what I mean).<br><br>This week, he bought an iMac. He loves it to death. He can't believe how easy it is to use. He asked me today if it is true that all you have to do to delete an app is drag it to the trash. He couldn't believe it. He says he has never had as much fun with a computer as he's been having for the last two days on the iMac. He says that his next laptop purchase is going to be an iBook.<br><br>His son, meanwhile, who is going to college in some computer major, is making fun of the iMac. So I told my friend to open the Terminal for his son and see how the son reacts. Can't wait to hear what happens <br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

You would be suprised at how many people my age (18) make fun of Macs without knowing what they really are like. They claim they are unstable (some even claim that windoze is more stable!?!) but they only claim this as the last time they used one it was running 7.x or 8.x and they have never used OS X. When I show them OS X they are generally impressed however.<br><br>“Here can be found the last words of Joseph of Arimathea.

I have 3 brothers and 2 of them are PC users....but not for long. Both are getting macs this summer sometime.<br><br>My oldest brother and I have been using macs for awhile and the other 2 kept giving snide remarks about compatibility and such about Macs. Now they are both converts <br><br>Too bad my 4 sisters can't be convinced....<br><br>
I was in a local computer retailer looking for a network printer, when a couple came in & started looking at the new iMac. The guy was quite impressed & started quoting specs. The girl bluntly said "I hate Macs"! She then asked the sales clerk how to open the CD drive. He replied "hit the eject key".... She did & went "cool, WAY COOL".... After that she began to sit down & explore the iMac & OSX!<br><br>
