OOo's put the willies up Microsoft

2011 for mac

OpenOffice is a sack of crap for professional use. i'm a mac user so i have no love affair with Microsoft. If you work in professional environments OO is just shocking in virtually every element except that its free. If you are a mom and pop outfit that just needs to write a few letters or add up your accounts go for it.

right now i'd advise anybody to switch to mac and use office 2011 = menus and full macros

hmmm... hackintosh

my kid would only have this if ir ran OS X - no way am I getting his Dell 10v Hackintosh out his hands for some windows/linux netbook no matter how rugged it is. He's 10yo and knows if he breaks it its dead - so he really looks after it. Maybe a good lesson for kids to learn.

Windows 7 'genuine' nagware winging its way to OS

duh!

OS x86 works well on a Dell mini 10v with NetbookInstaller and NetbookBootLoader. Macbooks are excellent with Snow Leopard. No WAT or serial numbers - just installs and runs.

I can not see a reason to use Windows - except maybe poverty, stupidity and gaming.

Dell crowned Bad Santa computer maker by angry customers

the solution is easy.

I walked into the Apple store and walked out with a 4GB, 250GB Macbook Pro and a 260GB Lacie backup drive in under 15 minutes.

Sometimes cheap is just that. Some people get what they deserve buying a Dell. That's what you get for being tight. If you don't pay for service and quality, you don't get any.

what's the Latin for 'the buyer is an idiot?' Retardo emptor?

Spotify: We kick the tyres

Thumb Down

OP knows nothing about the sound quality

>Sound quality is so-so: at around 160kbps it's got that "standing outside the room" feel to it.

Utter rubbish. 160kbs is above normal MP3 quality and very good. If you think it sounds like you are hearing it through a wall/door I suggest you sort your stereo out. Its more than fine and as good - or better than copies you get off P2P.
