    M$ :)

    Three Apple engineers and three Microsoft employees are traveling
    by train to a conference. At the station, the three Microsoft employees
    each
    buy tickets and watch as the three Apple engineers buy only a single
    ticket.

    "How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks a
    Microsoft employee. "Watch and you'll see," answers the Apple engineer.
    They all board the train. The Microsoft employees take their
    respectiveseats but all three Apple engineers cram into a restroom and
    close
    the door behind them.

    Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around
    collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, "ticket,
    please." The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a
    ticket
    in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.

    The Microsoft employees saw this and agreed it was quite a clever
    idea. So after the conference, the Microsoft employees decide to copy
    the
    Apple engineers (as they always do) on the return trip and save some
    money
    (being clever with money, and all that). When they get to the station,
    they
    buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the
    Apple
    engineers don't buy a ticket at all.

    "How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asks one perplexed
    Microsoft employee. "Watch and you'll see," answers an Apple engineer.
    When they board the train the three Microsoft employees cram into a
    restroom and the three Apple engineers cram into another one nearby.
    The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of the Apple engineers
    leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the Microsoft
    employees are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket,
    please..."

    Definately very good. Too bad that Apple makes crap for machines (My opinion-no flames please).

    Apple is a company that makes Mac's (another type of computer).

    >>Mac = crap<<

    Hey watch your mouth boy! When I was a young lad of 6 (way back in 1988), the first computer I ever used was a Mac. It was great fun! Then a few years later, the first computer my parents got was Macintosh IIsi, which had a huge 40Mb hard drive, 4Mb of RAM, and a blazing 20MHz processor!

    I still like Apples...and the design of the iBook looks so funky...better than the usual boring black notebooks that IBM make.

    Hey, macs are pretty powerful...Just harder to upgrade.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    I have to use them sometimes, and they drive me crazy. First of all, there's no right click! It drives me crazy. The GUI is ugly and annoying, it's a pain in the ass to minimize things, and of course the fact they cant upgrade. They are slower than PC's from what I have experienced, and the only upside that I have ever heard of is that they are better working with grphics. WRONG!!!! I use Photoshop, Illustrator, and other graphics programs on a mac and they run slower that a PC's. And even if that statement was wrong, why would there be waaaaay more 3d modeling/animation programs available for PC and not for Mac if Mac's are better with images?

    Do they use PC's because they are better? I'd say so. If mac's were better, we'd see more people using them, and therefore, more software for them.
