Brother Kirk is right, I am a longtime Mac user. I worked very hard as a virtually starving artist to pay for that Mac. And I still don't have this $2,000 model you speak of either. I have an eMac, which I bought several years ago for about $1,200. Funny you should mention it, though, because I have been thinking of buying one of the new iMacs recently. Maybe a 20" model. But NOOOOOOOO!!! I got laid off from my job as a menial servant to the capitalist overlords about a month ago. Such is the system (and my aptitide) that I was able to find another job within a month. Only had time to draw one unemployment check this time around. But I digress.
It's good to see you've seen the light, Dr. S (for once). But I don't know if you can hack being one of the Mac elite. It requires a certain sense of digital martyrhood that I don't see you as being proficient at. I don't think you'd fit in well with Steve Jobs' rebel alliance and their 9% market share. I think you're more suited toward Bill Gates' Evil Empire and their quest for world domination. It goes along with the whole social-Darwinist, Randian, "survival of the fittest" approach. If you get a Mac, you might start doing Google searches for Emma Goldman, or something. I'm not sure your system could handle it.
But I wish you well in your quest for the most perfect operating system (OSX). If you have any questions, I would be happy to be of assistance.
