Hey thanks. I appreciate your empathy . I know apple IIs came out 20 years ago. I didn't like apple back then and I don't like them now. Sure Steve Jobs was the man with the masterplan and Gates stole (or bought) the ideas from him, but I like Microsoft's OS's better.

I guess it's just about personal opinion. The only reason I brought it up is because the Apple II was my first computer and my last Apple.

After I saw how much better Windows was compared to my old apple, Microsoft had me sold. Maybe Apple's new systems are better, more reliable. But I don't care. I'm a Windows man and that's that.

I was a PC person up untill about a year ago, then I made the radical switch to a G5 Mac.

I'm so glad I made that decision. I love my mac...

I have a 20" iMac G5 at home, a 12" powerbook that I'm using right now, and I'm buying my girlfriend a 15" powerbook for Christmas so she will leave my iMac alone.

I can't stand Windoze.
