Those of you who have switched to Intels this soon are traitors to a great chip and legacy.
You'll pardon me, but I'm gonna take some offense to that. Lets review.
My first computer was an apple //e
My first Mac was a mac plus. My first PC was, oh wait, I never bought one.
I learned pagemaker when it was a mac only program from Aldus.
I have a 68LC040 processor hanging from the rear view mirror of my car.
I own 51 apple computer t-shirts. And I wear them too.
I college obsolete apple peripherals. Newtons, Quicktakes, The PowerCD.
I have worked for almost ten years as an apple certified desktop and portable tech. I do nothing but Mac all day long.
I passed my first desktop cert when there were still questions about localtalk, and mac classics in the exam.
Last time I checked, what truly defined the differences between a Mac and a PC happened to to be the OS as well as the hardware. You dont see me running windows.
Likewise, if I'm a traitor to a great legacy, and a great chip, which chip do you mean? the 68000 series from Motorola, or the PPC chips built by IBM. Or would it be the PPC chips currently manufactured by FreeScale? I currently own machines that have used all of them. I've repaired all of them, and I can take most all of them apart with my eyes closed.
Take note, I'm not a mac zealot. I encourage people to use whatever they like. HOWEVER. I do take pride in my profession, my skills, my career, and my lifetime loyalty to the Mac platform. I would suggest consider who you're calling a traitor, before doing so. You may bite off more than you can chew.
But of course, the whole thread is flamebait anyway.
