Bobby,

Are you talking abou the general forum statistics page? I like that page, but I was looking for a bit more specific detail to the actual OS uses out there rather than just a general are you using Windows, Mac or other.

I use Linux Mandrake 9.0 and Windows XP Professional. Just bought an HP 5455 Pocket PC. It was a toss up between the HP and an Apple laptop. Al Gore joining Apple's BOD clinched it for me.

Pick,

As an avid Apple fan, I too was really bothered by the Al Gore thing.

I'm getting one of those 17" laptops for work in a few months-- you know the one Al invented after he invented the Internet and some Interet jargon!

I use OS-10 Jaguar and win XP Pro, and I like both. I prefer windows for many apps, but I use I-Movie 3 and I-Tunes quite a bit.

Bobby,

That's one impressive setup. I thought I took the cake for home networking, but my hats of to you!

Thanks for posting!

Eric

Cool Argosy-1. Hey you have an Apple store down the street. If you are an educator, you can get a free copy of OS 10.2. I can tell you that if the software is out there for your needs, it's a whole better world than 9.x was.

I see you are in Schaumburg. I'm in Glenview. Hope to meet you at one of the meets whenever they happen.

Regards,

Eric

ENVY IN THE DEEPEST SHADE OF GREEN !

Geeez you guys! I have never even heard of some of that stuff! You can make your computers get up and dance and I can't even make mine tap a toe! It's wonderful to be that gifted and able to sort out all of this computereez - I'm always in awe of this stuff. My bonnet's off to you all.
BTW, I have a new Gateway w/XP and the fancy flat screen and the cutest optical mouse. Even though I can barely make it "go", I've entered the 21st century and proud of it!!

Good for you Suz!

Don't let it get to you...everyone has a specialty, this just happens to be mine!

On a personal note, I've noticed that it seems XP is finally getting accepted. For a while it was 2000 that was the thing to have.

We Mac people just tread along with our 8-9%!

Regards,

Eric

state of the art

I have a Commodore 64, an Apple IIc and a turbo abbacus! Actually it seems that slow with my local 28 baud service.

Dude, I have an Apple //c too! Those ROCK(off the web)! Now I have a Mac, but I do still love to hook it up and play Swashbuckler and Beyond Castle Wolfenstein!
