Whilst being a big admirer of both Apple hardware
I won't own any of it. My two forays into Apple world were disasters. The first was with my wife's Apple computer and although I have always been fascinated with the mystique of the computer and built my first one from a kit and learned to program on it, I almost gave up the whole thing after a couple of weeks wrestling with my wife's Apple. If you don't do it the apple way it don't get done at all. The second was with one of those Ipod music
things with a single
button inside a swirly gadget. It was a fantastic device which would hold thousands of music
tracks but again it required a giant leap of comprehension for someone raised in an electronic world which required either a switch or a knob for the implementation of each function. It now sleeps with the fishes in one of the lonely anchorages
I regularly use.
Good luck with the Apple and if reloading the software
every time you boot the machine is the worst it does to you you're in luck mate.
On Billy and the software changes and revisions.
I agree with you entirely, he should have retired after XP was debugged and left us in peace. Every time I have to replace a computer and learn a new version of Microhard I swear I am going to make the effort to shift to Linux
. Never quiet happens although I did manage to install Ubuntu on a Toshiba by replacing the hard drive with a fresh clean one once.
