    Yet Windoze XP Home Edition is around $190 for the full program and OS X Tiger is around $110.

    These prices come from a large online retailer and so are available to the average person.
    Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...

    ok or try $129.99 for osx, and try $99 for windows upgrade or full version $98 on amazon.com (one of windows listed sites to 'buy' windows xp.

    and either way, a mac costs more than a pc.

    What an old discussion. Yes, PC's are cheaper but the price-value ratio is obviously appropriate, considering we are buying "designer boxes" with "designer OS" and iLife.

    Apple never played the upgrade market, but you can use the coupons that come with your mac to gt discounts.

    So Apple chose a way in the middle, instead of confusing customers with 20 boxes (i.e., "Windows XP special March Edition for corporate users whose sons study at Stanford" vs "Windows XP Service Pack 72.3.8 SE RSVP BYOB)

    A friend of my dad's used to work at Microsoft and was aparently was very high up in the company. He said that Bill was a very nice guy until you had to do buisness with him that's when he turns nasty. He said that when in meetings if you didn't give an answer to any of his question with in 3 seconds you where practically fired! This was because Bill didn't want any half thought out ideas, he wanted ideas that had every possible option pre planned. But this was just him being a great buisness man.

    Last year Bill said that he would be retiring from MS this year as he wants to refocus on his charity, the Bill and Linda gates fund and I hope it all goes well for him. I think he has finally gotten to the point where he wants to do good with all that cash. Aparently the same thing will be happening with Ballmers as well.

    edit - I have the feeling Ballmers won't be remembered for his "great wisdom"...
