Isn't it possible to have at least ONE forum on the 'net which doesn't contain the pc/mac debate? Besides everyone here is smart enough to realize macs are far superior.

And........ flame!

Well aren't Mac's just under powered PC's with an over glorified OS now anyway? A real rebel goes with 64bit AMD running linux. (though admittedly I'm using the windoze virus OS)

Actually they both suck. Should have stuck with Atari..

I wonder what OS they're running in that G3. OS9? I wonder if the beer tap crashes? Might need to upgrade to OSX.

That tap probaly works good if everything is OS9. Actually Tiger works really well for most stuff. Just have to be careful in the OS9 run time enviro.
Let's talk about beer instead. Do you like beer?

the newer Mac OS's are basically a version of Linux. as soon as apple starts using 64bit AMD processors (and adding another button to the mouse!) I might consider buying one.

No no no no.. Mac OSX is based on an obscure kernel and FreeBSD. Linux has nothing to do with it.

And the IBM chips have almost always been faster and more efficient than their Intel/AMD counterparts. However, Apple is ceasing development of the XNU kernel for IBM's chips and is moving to the x86 architecture, so maybe you'll get your wish to use an AMD 64-bit chip in the next year or two.

And FYI, you can plug just about any USB mouse into a Mac and use all of the buttons. Not to mention Apple's Mighty Mouse, a mouse with multiple buttons including a touch pad with definable functions for definable sections of the pad.

It would help if there computers didi actuallu dispense beer. Sure would be convenient, sitting at your computer, yappin' away on homebrewtalk and just having tolean over to pour another beer. Now if I could just fit a keg in my laptop...

I would think the ale would be a bit warm coming out of a Mac.

It works fine, but you can only serve Apple's proprietary beer, and it costs twice as much as the other brands.
