i know i know, i under stand how you feel, but i have no probs. i have dreamweaver ultra dev, and i think it just runs smother and more zippy on my Xp box, i have full ata 100 drives and all the bells an whistles an asus mother board can offer. I could not afford the $4000 for a Mac of the same power, i made the computer my self. I will not say im a pro, but i will say i have used all kinds of Mac's and iknow how many people feel, but thats just they way i feel. You must not think of crappy windows 95 , when you think XP and i know im going to get hell for this.
