Oh that is so true…I hope they did not give Microsoft the idea to enter the CNC market…

That’s pretty good.

LOL….My brother is one of the most sophisticated computer users I know….He has always been a PC guy. Last summer he bought a Macbook…...he’s now angry with himself for ever wasting time with a PC. One of these days I’ll probably switch myself.

Very funny, I laughed until tears came.
I just sent this to my Grandson, who recently bought a Mac, after years of frustration. I have a PC, & I’ll live with it until it blows up.

hahaha too funny
This one made me laugh out loud: “even though the new saw motor rpm is ten times the speed of the previous saw, you will not be able to cut wood any faster nor will it make you any more productive, in fact, it may be a little slower”

definitely passing this along to my son.

That’s so great… isn’t it funny what we’ll accept from computers, that just would not fly in any other industry?

I’ve learned SO much about troubleshooting PC’s over the years… stuff I never needed to know about the mac. (having spent an equal number of years on each.)

It’s a good job that Intel and AMD are able to double the computing power every year or we’d still be running dos.

Those of us who have been around a while know about windows 3.0 and the speed demon it wasn’t.

It was really funny to me as I’ve had the PC/Mac debate more times than I care to mention. My Dad and brother are both in the computer science industry. My Dad is now the VP of Operations and isn’t as hands on. He has always used Microsoft products and most likely will always use them as that’s what he knows. My brother is the stereotypical Mac enthusiast. Makes for fun holiday discussions!
