Why don't you throw up a full process listing?

( Process Explorer is the best tool for this, AFAIK. )

ROFL! Leave it to a PC-weenie to find any opportunity to bash macs without facts. Just pitiful. I just want to know where he got the "information" that Macs are slower and don't have any games out. Mostly all new PC games released these days get released for the Mac as well... and a lot of times at a lower price. Where's my proof? clubmac.com

And clearly, Macs are more stable, they're unix based, great value for the price, and the most easy and intuitive operating system for both home users and professionals.

And besides, if "Macs suck" then how come Windows is always copying the operating system, lol. They do a horrible job at it I might add.

Have you tried OS X Server as a matter of interest.  I think it rivalls many of the more std. Linux server platforms.

It's a mouse not a mice. You don't need multiple of them do you?
I did defeat Epyon, on Hard Mode but I used up lots of continues. :)

Yeah, whatever. It just didn't sound right to say 'You can also buy mouse with two buttons' :)

It used to be, "Don't buy a Mac, you can't get your job done on it." Now it's "Don't buy a Mac, you can't play games on it." :biggrin:

Besides, I've never had a problem with games on my Mac. I have NWN, I have Halo, I have WC3, I have Snood... Granted some of them years later, but I'm not much of a big gamer anyway.

For the record, I have renounced and type of Mac elitism I might once have posessed; I'm looking into getting a cheap PC desktop (pending my next paycheck) so's I can run the few programs that don't have equivalents on the Mac. (Example: Splinter Cell ;)) Not that I wouldn't rather a G5 and a coupla huge cinema displays, but I'm not gonna pass up Splinter Cell just because I feel Macs are better.*



*They are, though ;)

Mac Best Graphics OS
If you think about it, the only reason Windows is the best gaming OS is because of the sheer number of games available on Windows.

A lot of the games today demand intense graphics, right? Well, if the Mac is best at graphics (which it is), then surely games would run better on a Mac?
