Why is it whenever we have a good discussion, somebody starts calling people trolls?

Are we having a good discussion?  I thought you were talking about Macs and PCs.....

Please leave your religion at the login page.    :-\

Commadore 64 was good enough for me and it's good enough for my kids by gawd.    New fangled, cheap crap all the kiddies have today...   ;D

When you turn off a MAC don't you depress the same button that you use to turn it on? I believe that you use the same key to turn a Mercedes on or off. What's your point? ;)

Uhhhm ... no. You choose "Shut Down" Obviously you've never used a Mac. that's my point.

As a person who has been forced to use both through out my adult life I can tolerate windows but I enjoy working on a Mac.

And as a person who has frequently used both, I reached the opposite conclusion. 

Which always has surprised me seeing as you are in a creative field - Mac was designed specifically to make using a computer not only more user friendly but also a more artistic experience.

Regardless, I'm just trying have a little fun. Use whatever you like. But I've had significantly fewer problems on my Mac than I have ever had on any Window's based machines. I've never had problems accessing any website on a Mac.

Now the kicker is going to be when Wease comes up and says he's using a Mac. That would be rich!  ;)

Are you saying there is a power on switch and a separate power off switch? I'm talking about physical switches. Using the same for both is very common with most electronics.

It would be funny if he's using a MAC. :D

Phil, as major pointed out, we're just having a little fun. Please don't make this into something else.

Dude, what? Don't try to paint me into a bad guy, if it's all in fun, that's cool, but your posts aren't exactly clear that you're joking around. I've seen these sorts of posts spiral into flamewars, I just didn't want that to happen here.

Skeered of linux huh? Common problems people experience with pc's are virtually nonexistent with a linux system. Though everyone I know who switched to a Mac of some sort loves them and swears they'll never buy another.

So weaze. Did you find a solution to your woes?

Probably not.  He hasn't been back since his OP.   :P

Corrected that for you and I wasn't the one who brought up MAC's in the first place.

Thanks.

Dude, I was joking. Who really gives a s*** what computer people use? I certainly don't.

Another way to look at the Start button issue, is that shutdown is a process, so PC's are correct in that you're starting the shutdown process. :D
