Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Flame of the Week

Subject: Your Mac Article

At this time, I don't feel like typing anything long, so I'll get right to the point:

You are a lier. Apple customers have always been content with their company and it's products. So how much did Microsoft pay you to make up this trash? $100? $200? $500? More? Less? First off, Windows isn't even a legal operating system, seeing that they stole it from Apple. Second, the dock is an excellent feature. I have never had a problem with it, and it is far better than the "start" menu in Windows XP.

The Mac's interface and general looks are it's greatest strength. You cannot seriously tell me that Windows beats Macs in this-Windows looks, to be honest, like shit in comparison to the Mac, on both the exterior and the desktop/applications.

Don't even try to win this battle, because it was lost for Microsoft before it even began.

Sucks for you that you'll be stuck with crap computers. Ah well....better that us intelligent people use Macs while all the dumb ones use Windows. That way, there aren't newbs all over all the Mac sites.
