Mac-Forums.com is excited to announce that we are partnering with Paul Thorrott's Windows SuperSite to launch a new forum dedicated to running Windows on the Mac! As a result, Mac-Forums.com will be shutting down as of April 15, 2007.

Due to Apple's switch to Intel architecture, its ability to run Windows, Apple's announcement of abandoning Webkit for Trident (http://webkit.org/blog/100/webkit-shutting-down/) (IE's rendering engine), and Paul Thurrott's cogent arguments on the superiority of Windows, the staff at Mac-Forums found it too compelling to not remake ourselves.

Thanks to everyone who has made us great and we hope you all join us in our transition to our new home at Windows-Mac-Forums.com.

Oh, and by the way...April Fools (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Fools)!

Actually you could have done it in a credible way. But giving Paul Thurott any credit is like trying to play a Betthoven Sonata on an Ukulele.

Nah the ukulele sounds a bit too good for Thurrot.

I remembered it was 4-1, as wowinsider already tried to pull a stunt.

I was disappointed to be honest, as joining Paul Thorrott's site would of put me right off and to be honest I could do with visiting one less website, although I would of preferred it not to be this.

Oh well I'm sure I can get over that. I'll be glad when this Day is over :)

Heh...somebody is uptight and gave me neg rep for yawing at the April Fools joke. Didn't have the decency to attach a name though.

Remarkable. http://www.augk18.dsl.pipex.com/Smileys/rolleyes2.gif

OK Schweb, I was reading this late April 5th...so the April fools line only came to play after I re-read the first paragraph twice. I should give you negative feedback for that one :eek:
