@AC 20:32... a real coward
Wow, I'd really like to know what color the skies are in your world. :p
"Have the school holidays started already?"
I have probably been working in the computer industry since you were in diapers.
"Looks like it."
And if MS decided to kill support for anything but the latest hardware and software, you would bitch about that as well I'm sure.
"This is a good thing, but moot."
Not moot at all. The OP was regarding the OS should be 64-bit, and that's what is sold on new hardware, so it is totally relevant. Another "Fail" for you.
"leopard fully supported G5 processors"
OSX has not supported the G5 PPC models for ~4 years. Anyone who wants the new OSX features is forced to purchase a complete new computer.
Windows 7 will still run on hardware from 4+ years ago.
"perhaps that'd've been a good point to consider switching. Tit."
I own a software development company, I have numerous Wintel systems, Mac, and Linux. No switching is required. And I like tits, especially when they are attached to pretty women.
