    Vista, the osx wanna be....?

    Sorta :) ... but I always thought it meant the button was a starting point to stuff you want to do so if I want to start shutting down, I'll click on start and then see what tasks are there. Ok fine I'm making stuff up a bit now. LOL

    Vista, the osx wanna be....?

    Hi Mikuro, yes I know that part, I just meant that if you disable it from mounting on the desktop, then its just going to be appearing in the finder which means it will behave more similar to the way "my computer" behaves in windows. Its not alternating mounting between desktop or finder but...

    Vista, the osx wanna be....?

    IMO mounting drive on the desktop is not elegant at all. Ever try to search for a mounted pen drive on someones cluttered desktop where they might have a ton of icons. To make matters worse, the mounted drives can appear anywhere there is free space. This means that if someone had arranged...

    Vista, the osx wanna be....?

    No offence but dragging an icon of something that holds my data into the trash to eject or dismount it doesnt seem straight forward to me :) Infact that action is about as far away from what you really want done as can possibly be. No really... LOL Sure its more clean around the edges but it...

    Vista, the osx wanna be....?

    Its not brain surgery. The little icon shows shows removable storage (USB or Firewire). You click on it and it shows you your one device or multiple devices that are there. You can then put the mouse over the device you want disconnected and click on it. If the drive was very recently...

    Yahoo! OUTRAGE!!!

    Thats not what I'm saying at all. I'm saying that they may have a software version may have all kinds of nonstandard stuff in their code and as long as its running on windows and they are really not losing any revenue by supporting only windows, then they have zero motivation to spend money...

    Yahoo! OUTRAGE!!!

    In all fairness, 99% of their business probably comes from windows PC's so its a lot cheaper to just hire a windows dev team. Apple is the underdog so I would think that apple should be the one offering some kind of windows compatability tools to help in these kinds of situations. If I had a...

    vista ramblings.

    No problem :) and the dullness thing, ya I didnt get that part. I thought you meant you couldnt tell which was the active window because the colour / shade didnt change when you tried it. One more thing I found it does but I forgot to mention is it hightlights the "X" for closing the window in...

    vista ramblings.

    I must mention a few things as I use OSX, XP and Vista (mind you I use OSX as my secondary OS so I may be windows biast)... -Flip3D does not have to be run from the quicklaunch. The icon is there for anyone using a keyboard without a windows key which these days is almost nobody as 99.9% of...

    What's so great about macs? Why are they better than PCs?

    So wait, you're saying that unless I conform and forced to understand why your point of view is the right one, then I'm wasting everyones time? Just making sure I understand. I have both Windows machines and a B&W G3 with 10.3.9 on there so I have used both but choose to use Windows as my...

    What's so great about macs? Why are they better than PCs?

    ummm no. The point is in 5 years, apple as release 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 and XP is still XP. Each time apple releases the next version, support for people who purchased their machine with the previous version decreases. If they want to stay on top of the game (as well as maintain compatability...

    Hmm from this page, it looks like you do have DRM http://www.matthewgifford.com/2005/08/01/drm-in-os-x-might-drive-me-away/ You might find the search faster but searching by file type and or file extensions dont work nearly as well. Guess you could drop to commandline. Pitty that sharp clean...

    What's so great about macs? Why are they better than PCs?

    See my experience is different. I have been building PCs for the longest time and almost nothing I've built has gone down due to faulty hardware. I believe generic PCs built by inexperienced builders may be unreliable but its not true to say that PCs are unreliable. It depends on the...

    What's so great about macs? Why are they better than PCs?

    -Better user interface? Maybe. Thats debatable. Its 2007 and I still have to resize a window from one corner? Still no real maximize window to fill the screen incase I need to squeeze every last drop of realestate on a spreadsheet -Ease of use? Two of my friends have both Mac and PC and we...
