Firefox beta 5 is even faster. I love the nightly builds...

Well, you got a broken iPod or a bad iTunes install or something... I don't think it's the general consensus that iTunes freezes during music transfers.

I don't quite understand what you're ranting about. What "lines of code" are you talking about, in order to accomplish what? iTunes is better than WMP, as far as I'm concerned... So I don't know what you're trying to get at; what's the goal you have in mind?

Perhaps you should get out more.

Does that make the computers or the software bad because the users are only doing basic stuff with the computers? What if that's all they need to do, and they like being able to do those things in a low-maintenance OS?

How is this related? I'm willing to pay a little more for better (my opinion) software. I think it's more low-maintenance; it doesn't ask that you do much to keep it in shape and to keep it functional. If it's not worth it to you - fine, but that doesn't make other people stupid because that's what they prefer.

Oh, come on. This is so invented. You PC fanboys truly believe that every Saturday night, there is a group of cloaked Applets that praise steve jobs and burn PCs as a ritual. The Mac zealot, though some do exist, is, for the most part, a creation of the PC fanboy in order to justify his silly "hatred" for m$'s competitors.

Dell accepts low quality hardware in return for rebates. My friend's aunt works for dell management. This clearly explains why everyone I've met in real life who had a dell had hardware problems, be it a burned cap, dead PSU, or bad optical drive.

I don't think you can find a Core 2 Duo laptop for significantly less than a MacBook. Maybe a pentium dual-core, but actual C2D laptops are generally around the same price.
