Fingers Crossed

Installing Win XP Service Pack 2 as I type... I'll reboot once I'm done here.

To be honest, as much gooey press as Apple gets, Microsoft and Windows isn't anywhwere near as bad for upgrades and patches. As a long time (15 year) Macophile I can attest to the horrors of upgrading from system 6 to 7 to 8 to 8.x to 9 to 9.0.x to 9.1 to 9.1.x and finally decided that OS X wasn't really any better than WinXP, especially when the hardware cost twice as much.

The new G5 iMacs look nice, but meh, it's at least $1500 to get a superdrive (and a big whoop-de-doo 256MB RAM and 60GB hard drive), then it's a nasty slot loader... And notice how they omit the keyboard and mouse from the promo pix. It does look like it would make a nice tablet PC though...

Oh well, here goes...
