So Dumb it Makes My Head Hurt
Did you see this whack-job? Some DOLT took a $2500 Apple G5 that he got for xmas and crammed a shitty PC into the case. He carelessly gutted the precision engineered components that were lovingly "Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in Taiwan," and gave them to his equally dumb friend in a box. What a friggin moron.

"Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure G5 is a great computer, but I wanted a Dell for Christmas. I don’t have any programs for Apple and didn’t feel like waiting for them. I thought about selling it, but my parents would be upset with me. After all, this was a very expensive gift and it meant a lot to them to give to me.

"It’s a good thing my parents don’t know anything about computers, because I’m sure they would be really angry if they knew what I did. I have to say that I'm happy - I can keep on using XP." (emphasis mine)

It makes me very angry. His reasoning for the switch was that he lacked apps for OS X, but then he goes and says, "I use it mostly for Internet, ripping music/DVDs." ALL of which can be done with software that comes pre-installed on the G5, and ALL OF WHICH would work better and faster on the G5.
