Dearest Tony, Excuse me? You feel I would be surprised and humbled that there are people experienced with computers on this list? (Since I personally know people who have been programming computers since the early 80's and some who have always rolled their own, does that have any relevance to the quality of my opinion? No... Would you be surprised and humbled to know that back in 95, after I had a mechanical problem with one of their scanners, a high mucky muck at Polaroid called me later to chat because I was using his scanner with, as he put it, the most sophisticated installation they were aware of at the time? No, me neither.) You feel it would surprise me that people have found it necessary to switch to PC's because of platform incompatibilities in a world dominated by Microsoft? (Did it seem that I sounded like I had been living under a rock?) Do you know what irony means? Excuse me, but I did apologize in advance and I did change the subject line to make obvious the subject of my post. I specifically responded to a post that called it "free market capitalism gone awry" that software companies appeared to act as though most serious graphics work was done on the Mac, and acted accordingly. Despite your condescending tone, I still find it ironic to hear a Windoze user voice such complaints. And as he stated it made him want to go out and buy a G4 and I have one, I feel qualified to recommend that he do so. I did not suggest that a PC user should be described as "a poor fool lusting after a G4". And finally, I would have made no further posting on this topic on this list, but for your "personal" posting to me on this list. Try your "what would you know, you little peon" rap on someone more easily impressed.... Oh, and "thanks for sharing".
