    Yes, seriously!

    A swansong for the G5, I guess ;)

    Yes, it is/was a beauty to behold, but that was largely due to the fact that there were several "user installable" parts. For example, midplane board, hard drive, RAM, etc. Funny thing is that people still needed help simply installing RAM! Apple rethought this strategy, because subsequent iMac models did away with this clean internal design (and so many user-installable parts).

    ... but "Mac Zealots" is kind of an overstatement, sure some people like macs, some people love macs, and some people hate macs, but for my self, i am a PC, and a Mac...

    @Chris - the intent of my post was to take the pi$$ out of what appeared (to me) to be Mac flame-bait from. "Mac zealot" was a self-depricating reference to steal Joe C's "thunder" if/when using said term himself.

    The point is that life is not as black and white as "I'm a Mac"/"I'm a PC"--as Joe C insightfully points out in his later post re: "PC" definition. Apple's and Microsoft's ad campaigns try to stoke this outmoded argument. We know how common it is for people to work on Windows PC at the office and Macs at home.

    But "PC" statistically refers to Windows PCs (given the slight market share Linux has).

    (Reasonably) technically savvy users reading/posting to this site should be somewhat aware of how versatile, lightweight and supported different flavors of Linux can be--compared to Macs and/or Windows PCs.

    Nevermind . . . this a waste of everyone's time. Sorry for the trivial distraction. Thanks Joe C. Happy New Year.
