    honestly i don't care if they do, i have one and i like it as it is, its pointless to rant on it- people have their own issues and tastes, as long as it doesn't bother you, then why not right?
    but yeah, kinda silly if you think about it.

    LOL... this thread has been good for a few laughs!
    I'd love to see one of those people who buys a pseudo-mac off Ebay try to take it to an Apple Store for repairs when something goes wrong...

    CUSTOMER: "My computer is saying something is wrong with my 'windows'."
    CLERK: "Sir, this is an APPLE store. That is not an Apple computer. Try CompUSA."
    CUSTOMER: "But the Ebay guy SAID it was an apple!!!!"
    CLERK: "Well I hope you didn't post feedback yet. Have a nice day, sir."


    And wouldn't the BIOS screen and RAM test on startup be a HUGE CLUE that you weren't using a mac? NTM the ability to install and run programs designed for WINDOWS XP? Hmmm...

    Anyway, it's PC users thumbing their noses at M$ by imitating Mac. Bully for them! People have been marketing inferior products to uninformed buyers for as long as markets have existed. Let the buyer beware!

    Most people who are stupid enough to do that wouldn't recognize the BIOS screen, obvious though it is. they'd probably think Windows and Mac OS X both run on DOS.

    Don't worry, a PC running WindowsXP can never be anything like a Mac with OSX. Get a load of this:

    WindowsXP is the joke of modern operating systems because it is only able to run a very limited number of programs at once. If you freshly boot XP, no matter how much RAM you have, you will only be able to open about 54 IE or Explorer windows before you won't be able to open anymore. If you open about 3 major programs like photoshop, Eudora, etc. you will then only be able to open a few more windows before you reach the "resource" limit. You will still have plenty of RAM, and the swap file won't be big--simply, Windows XP has the same limitation as Windows 98--limited resources. Maybe the kernel doesn't but the "windows xp overlay" does. On OSX you can open hundreds or thousands of windows with no problems at all.

    Microsoft is a retarded company and their products seriously suck. That's why no graphics/publishing professionals use Windows. It's good for a casual user who just wants to write an email, maybe take a look at some website. As soon as you need to do some serious work on it, like open a bunch of web browser windows, edit some photos, work with your email, etc. you'd be wondering why at some point nothing works anymore, and you are forced to close some of your windows.

    This is not a real "multitasking" operating system, but a joke on consumers. It's amazing that nobody has reported this serious limitation that I could find. I had a hard time believing the limitation when I found it. I wonder if Vista will still have the same limitation.

    I have used windows since 1995, and at this point I have decided that if I ever want to use a "REAL COMPUTER" I will have to use OSX. I am recommending to everyone who asks me now, to buy one of the new Intel Macs...

    Tek.

    I remember we had a thread a month or so ago about the windows xp multitasking limits. I did a little test of my own, and found similar results, that xp will run out of resources after having around 60 windows open. I ran the test on kubuntu linux, had about 150 terminal windows open, figured there was no end in sight so gave up. I didn't have an OS X machine at the time, and now I'm not going to bother trying with my powermac g4 with around 400 mb of memory.

    My thoughts have always been that for the casual user, windows xp will do the trick. For people who use their computers for productivity, mac os is the way to go. Finally, for people who are not necessarily using their computer as a tool to accomplish other tasks but are really in it for the computer itself (i.e. nerds*), Linux is the way to go.
