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!”
