    That defeats the purpose to me. If I get a Mac I want to run OSX.
    I do have a Mac Mini hooked up to my personal computer at work so I can switch with the push of a button

    Oh man. I just opened iTunes to find that Lady Gaga's new single is "Born This Way". I guess that explains it. I laughed out loud.

    Ok now I listened to the preview. Whoever does the electronics needs to be fired.

    MS office on Mac doesn't have publisher. Word for Mac has a lot of the features of publisher built into it but it isn't the same.

    Booyaa!

    Did you know that with the new electronic medical records crap, doctors are being forced to buy a $5000 program (that will go up to $25,000 in june) so that this will get going? Washington is becoming more and more bull***ty. Just like these nude scanners that the TSA uses.

    How long will it take for someone to hack the system? Give geohot (even though I hate that sucker) a day or two with it and its game over.

    I believe that now the scanners only show an outline instead of your genitals now.

    None of the ones I have seen can take one image and repeat it on a 8.5X11 or 11X17 sheet. They all need you to lay multiple images out yourself.

    Pages is the same way as the others. Lays out 10 business cards on a sheet (for example) instead of you just seeing one and telling it to print 10 on a sheet.
