Henry, I really don't appreciate being spoken of in the third person, as almost anyone would not appreciate.

But, you know, Henry, I really don't have to answer your elitist question if I choose not to. But I will answer it.

On Tue, 01 Aug 2006 10:53:27 -0700, Donald McDaniel How is this a flaw in the software? How do I move a window from any side on XP? There are advantages to...

My brother went to Apple, and as he upgraded his machines, he pbutted his older ones to me, because he was so enthusiastic about the Apple, and wanted me to share in his enthusiam.

And Henry, I really gave OS X a good try (almost 2 years, exclusively. I never booted XP in almost 2 years. I even sold my existing XP machine, and put all my Windows software in the closet, and bought Apple software to replace my Windows software.) But the Apple software just didn't measure up to the Windows software I tried replacing. Hell, man, I couldn't even size a window from ANY side, as I could in XP, and clicking on the "maximize" button NEVER maximized a window fully, as it does in XP. And don't get me started on the colors of OS X. Man, they make me sick.

Donald McDaniel So? Neither is windows. Since when can the end user just change the widget set of their XP...

My first Apple was a PPC G5, which he pbutted on to me when he bought a PPC G5 dualie. Then he bought an Intel iMac 17" when they came out. It being inadequate for his needs, he bought a 20" Intel iMac, and pbutted on his 17" Intel iMac to me, and enabled me to pay for it in small monthly payments.

I butture you, I tried OS X out, unbiasedly. But I soon found the Desktop to be is a piece of poo. PERIOD. I can't STAND it. Whereas, XP runs even better on my Apple Intel PC than it did on my IBM clones. With Apple's superior engineered machine, and Microsoft's superior Desktop, I now have a GREAT and SOLID PC. Hopefully, Microsoft will simplify Vista, and it will also run great on my Apple Intel PC for the next 10 years or so, especially if Microsoft ever adds EFI support back into the OS. Then I will be able to REMOVE OS X from my machine FOREVER, and return the 80GB I've given to OS X back to Vista.

But I'm now needing to increase the size of my SATA HD (the stock 160GB), and CAN'T, as I could have easily done myself in my IBM clone, and without damaging my machine and messing with my warranty. I will have to either take it to an authorized Apple service center, or send it back to Apple for the replacement. Both of which are a big burden to me and my brother.

Linux is not OS X, my friend. It DOES include the ability to better configure your desktop. But this 'configuration' does NOT include a user-programmable theming engine, as XP and Vista have...

So even my great machine has a few thorns.

Apple surely doesn't make it EASY to own one of their machines, unless you have beau coup bucks. I certainly don't.
