Good Thing I KEPT The PC ...

YEARS Ago ... 1995 ... I tried an Apple IIc ... and it worked well in my little store ... until it "stumbled & fell", which caused me *to call Apple and inquire how I might get the little thing to perform again.

Snooty Geek Moron sneered over the phone that "We don't support that platform anymore" ... I reminded him that I was BORN in Alameda & have Family & Friends ALL OVER THE BAY AREA, especially OAKLAND, and hung up, tossed the thing in the trash & forgot Snooty Yuppified Apple until the 37th WinCrash XP.

I have NO admiration for either version of the same insane business practice; "if we get the money 1st, let 'em suck eggs for answers" ... Where I come from, you take a person's money for something that doesn't work, people shoot at you & call you names (posthumously) ...

This G3 has a FRESH, legit OS X 10.2.8 install, three hard drives, 512 meg RAM, & works great ... except the MAC Web Site is telling me that my user name & password are invalid, & no option exists to get the point across to the sorry Rat *******s that THEIR Web Site is wrong, MY MacMail (desktop) works perfectly ...

I am now going to happily & contentedly explore Linux and kiss ALL The Moron Geeks goodbye ... or mebbe build another lunatic Motorcycle & go riding with REAL Women instead of venting on this keyboard ... YEAH .. That's it: I'll GET A LIFE! Booze & Broads & Highways! A little run to Denver, then back to the Bay Area & pick on Snotty Computer Geeks! After I finish up THAT sentence & make parole, mebbe they'll realize people are not amused at spending Stripper Sums of Money on CRAP THAT DOESN"T WORK!

But that's just an opinion of a 58 year old Viet Vet Biker/Bodyguard ... C-YA! There's a Panhead in the garage that's calling me ...

I never understand the point of posts like this, I mean come on posting something like this on a Macintosh forum is like dousing yourself in petrol and running in to a match ... but anyway you really think that dropping the OSX in favour of Linux will make you deal with less geeks? also the Mac website thing will no doubt happen on linux as well as its more likely that not a problem with the site itself

If you think moving to linux will solve your problems have i got news for you, they are just starting...If you think problem solving in windows and os x is a problem you have no idea of what awaits in linux.

Linux is great once you get it running and LEAVE IT ALONE. I used Linux for 6 years and it is nice, customizable, stable. Problem is, there is always something on the system that doesn't quite work properly. Whether its the sound card, printer, digicam, etc. Worse, I always ended up breaking something during the endless daily upgrades that are possible with Debian Linux. I would learn a lot fixing them though. I mean you don't have to upgrade. You can have a perfectly running Linux system if you get it right and leave it alone, but where is the fun in that? All the command line stuff I learned in Linux gives me a better understanding of how Mac OS X works (even though you don't have to ever touch the command line, it is nice to know what goes on there). There will always be a place in my heart for Linux, but I actually seem to have more fun enjoying my Macs instead of fixing them all the time.

That could be the weirdest post I have ever read on here. Somebody call the suits and get a straight jacket on that guy.

1) it's odd for people to join JUST to rant on their troubles and tell us they're taking their...er...mac computer's life. And I too, don't get these, sometimes.
2)I'm not too big on retaliation (though I will denouce no one here today for what they've said; I'm just sayin', it paints us in a bad light, that's all).
3)I'd more like to know why he has to have everythingy perfect and/or why he thinks there is no one to help him...I've always had great mac help (except that time I was outsourced to India and the guy had NO CLUE what I was talking about...).

Guys, don't waste your time with this...didn't you notice that he didn't even show up again? It's really obvious that he only wanted to start one of those stupid troll threads again...

I'd go with coach_z and ask the mods to close this totally pointless and senseless thread.
