That's not really Microsoft's fault, but I guess I can see when a Mac would be attractive.

I have a PC, because the rest of my family has PCs. I'm always behind in Operating Systems, so Vista will never be a problem for me. I seriously had Windows 98 until 2006, on a 4 Gig harddrive. It was epic. And I still have it. I named it Diyonysis.

I used win 98 until sept. 2005, you beat me.
I don't really see a need to upgrade a working machine.

I switched very early in the year, shortly after Saturnalia. I acquired the parts at Saturnalia, then spent, like, 8 days putting it together.

I named my harddrives Copernicus, Diyonysis, and Erebus, but the fourth one has no name.

I don't why a lot of people have problems with Vista it runs like a clockwork for me, but maybe im not savy enough to realize its faults.

I named my computer Power Brick, my keyboard Old Jim, and my hamster Elvis.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

The only things I recall ever having named are my iPod and my Wii.
I think they're Optimus Prime, and Oogly Boogly, respectively.
