Uhh... Just a sec



Alright

I'll have a number one with a Sprite or Seven Up, whichever you have
And an extra eggroll
plz don't forget to give me napkins this time
Hello?

Oh, this thread is... about... things. Other things. O'er tings. OT...

Ehh...

@Pentium4  You name your rigs just like my brother does, i7-kun! hah, rigs. Get it? Like trucks? Yeah, I call computers rigs now. Sounds cool. Doctor Who probably does the same thing

@Bellz  Aw man... People just like to joke about hating Macs and stuff. It's like how people make fun of me for buying Admiral Nelson instead of Captain Morgan.  It's like Mac vs PC.  Apples vs Oranges.  Captain Morgan is smooth and refreshing, and the same price as Admiral Nelson, which is also smooth and refreshing. But Admiral Nelson has a hint more vanilla than Morgan does, even though it seems to contain a slightly smaller amount of alcohol compared to the esteemed Captain.  Just like Mac and PC.  Mac has more vanilla.  Than PC.

@svx  You so crazy, I think I wanna have yo baby

you guys are all giving me finland face. honestly, you guys NEVER get the right to complain about how much i post EVER again. >__<

@bella: i'm not trying to bash macs. i'm just bashing the phrase 'macs are better for art than PCs".
@red: yeah, it varies from region to region. here, most support sucks for dells (from my experience), and my sister's dell's screen is coming apart. poor thing can't even hold up its own head. :\ on the other hand, the support people for my HP were very patient, helpful, and nice. :3
and since when was taking apart a laptop easy? :\

@nej: you have an ASUS, not an ACER. *facepalm*

Macs used to be better for art than PCs (back in the days of Classic), but nowadays, there really isn't a difference, since OSX and Windows can run many of the same graphics programs. Use what ever works best for you!

I was talking about desktops, but Dell laptops are easy to work on, too.  To change the CPU or graphics card in ChachaGo, all I need to do is remove the keyboard and then I have access!

I love that, I don't need to rip the entire laptop apart to do anything different to it!

@aurora: that's exactly what i mean. people still have the stigma that "macs are made for art" in their minds. all the pics i put in free cookies a few weeks ago were made on a windows, using linux programs. :\

Aurora Borealis

@Choco: Those stigmas are annoying. I use a Mac for my graphics work (and well, everything) because it's most familiar to me, but I have used Windows without problems for the most part too. *shrugs*


Today I tried out FreeDOS running under Virtual Box.

Bella

Lol, I read "FreeDOS" as "FreeBSD" at first glance... I was about to give you some sort of medal. xD;

Aurora Borealis

Aww... :(

Maybe I should try that too?

Chocofreak13

now if you could run free bsd in virtualbox inside of freeDOS on virtualbox, that'd be pretty cool. 8)

or course, i've never emulated, so i can't really comment. :\

Aurora Borealis

I'm struggling to run FreeDOS, and I barely got past the installation process but I'm stuck. x_x

Today, I tried out Menuet OS!



The 64-bit version didn't install, but the 32-bit version works. It's a neat OS, it's full-featured, has a nice GUI, can play DOOM (really- it's one of the games bundled with it!), and is small enough to boot from a floppy! However, it's still in the beta stage (the 32-bit version more so, since it updates slower) and some programs are more/less stable than others, or maybe because Virtual Box is fickle at times. Who knows?

The paint program is definitely in its alpha stage though.


Bella

That is so cool Aurora! I salute you for trying out such a strange OS! : D

Chocofreak13

*applause* it sounds so cool! ^^

also, I WANT THAT DESKTOP BACKGROUND. O___O
