    Looked all over it and did not see it. I certainly have no agenda there. I
    may be blind but I am not illiterate!

    i'm not apologizing for anything. os x is *far* from perfect and even
    after several years, i am bewildered at some of the decisions they made
    as well as not fixing known issues. same with windows - lots of
    problems there too, but different ones.

    however, classic is one of the better parts of os x. in an ideal
    world, everything would have continued to work without a single
    problem. unfortunately, that isn't realistic. apple could have spent
    more time getting those last few things working, but at some point,
    they had to ship something. one must draw the line somewhere, and it
    certainly sucks if you are on the wrong side of it. for the vast
    majority of users, there are very few problems with classic, including
    printing. nothing is perfect, of course, and there will be some things
    that fail to work.
    are you claiming 100% of win 95 programs as well as hardware
    peripherals from that era work in xp? without needing an upgrade? i
    find that a little hard to believe.
    did you try a usb-parallel or usb-serial converter? most old printers
    work with those. another option is leave the printer plugged into your
    pc and share it over the network. yet another solution is a network
    print server or wi-fi base station with a printer port.
    for most users, old software and hardware continues to work. legacy
    support isn't 100% nor did they claim it would be, but given how much
    changed, i find it rather impressive that most things can still be
    used.

    Mac's are sooo great. Through the years Mac has commanded 10% of the
    computer market going to 7% then 5% and now commands a huge 3% of the
    computer market. Yes sir, perhaps in years to come, Mac's will become
    the ultimate computer and fade away.

    Wrong again, another misinformed peecee user.
    Peecee users are buying more peecees because their machines are breaking
    down quicker and have to be replaced.
    Check consumer reports and see who has better service and realibility

    Guys, guys, guys!

    This wasn't to start a pissing match. It was just a humorous little
    movie clip. Calm down already.

    No one, and I mean NO ONE is going to buy a Macintosh because of the
    recommendation of a Mac fanatic. So give it up already.

    Likewise, Macs aren't the devil. They're a different platform. Are we
    going to attack Sun workstations too?

    Ok, I feel better now.

    I actually had one of those. I loved the one line readout. Very
    cutting edge.

    I was using one of those while the guys at IBM were still laughing up their
    sleeves at the thought of the "common people" actually having computers in
    their HOMES..

    What would they do with them???

    Then I got a model 2 and an external hard drive... 10 megabytes (a biggie)
    and it was so small it only took as much space as 3 toasters stacked on top
    of each other.

    Memory was about $250 per MB, if you shopped REALLY hard.
