Does Microsoft put drugs in the water supply?

Apple’s “new 24-inch iMac [and all current Mac models] can run Windows — after all, it’s an Intel PC — and you can even switch almost instantly between the Mac’s regular programs and any Windows programs. All you have to do is buy a Mac and install Windows on it in some spare hard drive space,” Al Fasoldt writes for Technofile Online.

Fasoldt writes, “The only thing Apple couldn’t do in its stunning design was to make Windows as safe as OS X. If you run Windows on what is otherwise the safest do-everything home computer around, you’ll have a Windows PC. It will be just as dangerous as every other Windows PC. With Windows running on an OS X Mac, you have all the problems of Windows running on an ugly beige box.”

Fasoldt writes, “Sometimes I’m convinced that Microsoft puts drugs in the water supply. These drugs block the neural transmitters that would allow Windows users to realize that Mac OS X actually does run the kind of software they want to have. Like Microsoft Word. Or Photoshop. Or MSN Messenger. Or AOL. You see what I mean.”

“Oh, of course I’m just being cute. There’s no drjghs inh th wahug suprlj,” Fasoldt writes. “Odh. I’mg feeklng dizrhy. I lovn Windzo. I lovn Windzo!”

  1. What kind of writer is that one? Drugs in the water supply?

    He says “Oh, of course I’m just being cute. There’s no drjghs inh th wahug suprlj,” Fasoldt writes. “Odh. I’mg feeklng dizrhy. I lovn Windzo. I lovn Windzo!”

    Well, isn’t that logic appliable to everyone who loves some product he bought? What about Apple products lovers? Are then on drugs (different from what are using Microsoft in the water supply, of course) also? Are Apple and Microsoft drug companies? Are they going to base the manufacturing process in Colombia or something? Is it just a Windows thing? Why doesn’t he write something like ” i Love my Applez iPoz, and now we have Intelz Inzide ,we can goez for world dominationz.wOOt”

    Bah, there are someones who want attention writing silly things. And the ones echoing that low-live form of journalism are going downhill very very fast.

  2. …you can even switch almost instantly between the Mac’s regular programs and any Windows programs. All you have to do is buy a Mac and buy Parallels Workstation and buy and install Windows on it in some spare hard drive space…

    BootCamp is free, but hardly instant.

    While it is good to see this guy coming around (hasn’t he been a pro-Windows raver in the past?), he still has a way to go. Omitting vital details is an oh-so-Windows trait.

    Just the same, it’s a good start.
