    Mac - the new Windows?
    Is Mac becoming the new Windows?
    Is Mavericks the new Vista?
    Maybe not yet, but I fear they are working on it!

    That's quite the claim to make with no shred of evidence or argumentation. Care to elaborate?

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    The question should be - is Windows 8 becoming the new OS X?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I suspect the OP is referring to the translucent windows, which (IIRC) appeared in Windows for the first time with Vista and much was made of them at the time.

    If he's a Troll, he won't last long. I notice he took his forum name (Joe Btfsplk) from the cartoon character who walked around with the dark thunder cloud over his head. From "Li'l Abner" by the famous cartoonist "Al Capp".

    I also noticed he was in the forum when I came into it, but didn't post. Definitely a troll, and not very good at it, either.
