    Umm, it's the program that enables your computer to talk to your 3rd party software, such as a printer, scanner, joystick, etc. Don't kid yourself, just because you might not see them in Mac, they are there.

    There was 1 virus (BLaster) that could do that to Windows, but that was back before Service Pack 1 or 2, which is what 3 or 4 years ago?

    Plug and play have nothing to do with applications. It's about hardware compliance. I've never had problems installing a program on Windows either, and only if I need to use a hardwares specific features do I need to go look for a driver.

    And this has what to do with the OS? Nobody is arguing that Mac isn't visually better, both in physical design, layouts and probably graphical performance as well.

    And Mac-lovers again make fools of themselves. Of course piracy hurts Windows sales, it also hurts music, movie and videogame sales. However nobody can really prove to what extent, but if you're in either of those industries, you obviously want to limit piracy as much as possible.
     
  4. MSBlast isn't the only worm that has spread via just an internet connection. It is just the most famous of them. Sasser and Zotob followed, though they weren't as destructive. And before Blaster was Code Red. And there are many others that aren't nearly so widespread that could still have the same impact.

    But since XP SP2, none of them have been a threat against updated computers.

    Sure it does. But this guy was also thinking that everyone would actually want Vista, and so far, out of all the PC users I know, nobody does. Most of them are just waiting for the pioneers to finish taking all the arrows. To that extent, his opinion is insulting to his clientele.

    Some think Vista looks good, that doesn't mean they want it.
     
  8. I've got to get it, personally, but I wouldn't bother with it otherwise...

    I just have to decide if I should just go get a Dell or build it myself...

    I'd like to be able to run Vista but it won't run any of my business applications yet, which makes it about as valuable to me as an Apple.
     
  10. Except that you could then run XP on your Mac...
