What softare are you talking about?


--------------------------
My friend just got the new vivo and I just got the new mac mini. He paid more and after using both I can honestly say that the mac mini is faster. He now is thinking about the mac mini. Its only $499!


You definitely can't argue with that price. ;-D I don't know, I guess I've just become so indoctrinated with M$ that I haven't really tried anything else. My dad has one that he uses at work and I've fiddled around with it some, but not enough to go out and buy one. I was talking mainly about games and some of the CAD programs we're using are just free demos or lite versions and I haven't found any that will run on Macs -- though I can't really say that I've made an effort to look :-D. The full versions do, but I don't want to pay several hundred dollars for a software package that I can use for free on a PC. :*)

At OU, the only engineering software offered for Macs is MatLab. None of the CADs are offered through our school, although I would imagine they are available.

We don't get Maltab -- which really sucks I might add since I have to go to campus to do my HW -- but we get several circuit sim software packages technically through the developer, not the University I guess.

Doesn't AOL use it's own proprietary browser or does it still use Netscape?

I can't stand macs because they don't go well with games like PCs do. A PC using Linux is probably best, according to my nerdy computer friend.

Not with games, Linux has a long way to go in the ease of use and the gaming arena before it even thinks about seriously penetrating Microsoft's market share.

However, I do use it and I do like it...but the learning curve associated with such simple tasks as installing a wireless card or playing a game is really steep compared to Windows. I'm still figuring it out, but it's not easy.

No, sir. It only happens now in IE, though.
