A few months-ago MO was crashing IE on the previous crapbox I had here at work. Dunno if it was something on MO, or the crapbox. Only MO did it, though.

It was MO, but that issue got fixed.

No you don't. You can use crappy IE on Mac's OS.

Not anymore. MS doesn't have a Mac compatible browser anymore. I'd have to run Windows on my Mac using Boot Camp or VM Ware.

That's just too damn much trouble to run crappy IE.

Apple computers are like BMW motorcycles. Once the users have paid that premium price the device becomes "superior"..... no matter what!

Doesn't sound like much more trouble than having to download and install 3 browsers and disable Flash!

You might notice that KenMO said it was crashing Exploder too. Plus all those fun spyware and malware programs don't do anything to me!

You just like those because you're computer spy guy! I just set mine to private browsing and you can't tell if I'm lookin' at porn or searching for a job!

And sometimes less, when you compare similar computers. Apple seems expensive only because it doesn't make cut-rate computers at all.
