heh, IE.

Preaching now.

Ditch IE and head for mozilla. less fuss, less nasties, less holes.

Even better it's open source - so no pennies in Micro$hafts pockets [for all that IE is 'free' it's still crap, and they tie you into their world in other ways]

Hell I'd ditch windows too, but my linux skills are minimal.

preach off

Techie guy at work is an open source freak. Agree with you about mozilla/firefox, that's what I use, but I'm not really into that openoffice crap and whatnot... Sorry, what a dull post :?

yeah but this is the dull post thread :D

I like mozilla firefox, even tho it does have the glitches you often get with opensource. Still using Hotmail tho, cos amazingly it works and has never let me down.

Have'nt tried Thunderbird yet.

Used a mates applemac for a while - now there's the dog's 'nads [no good for gaming tho']

My major complaint with Macs is the mice. How the hell are you suppossed to get by with just one mouse button? Barbarism.
As for browsers, I'm using Firefox with SUSE 9.1. Yum. Plus it comes with quite a fetching anorak...

dont get me started on the mac v's pc debate...i have only used macs ..but thats kinda goes with my job they handle graphic applications far better than pc's and yes swordie is right ...not that good for companies spend loads of time making the game for the pc then if they have any money left over they might make a mac version!!!
The new G5 is the absolute mutts nuts. Maybe next year when i get some money sorted out...on the otherhand a new stick would be nicer...and far more enjoyable 8)
Heres a pick of me mac...bit geeky taking a pic of a computer :oops:
