2007: PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11) 867MHz | 40GB | 1GB RAM | VPC+Win2K,SP4 2009: MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11) 1.83MHz | 80GB | 2GB RAM | VPC+Win2K,SP4 2011: MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8) 2.4MHz | Crucial 256GB SSD | Crucial 8GB RAM | VMWare Win7 | VPC WinXP ---- All-around good guy, intrepid & pretty smart, depending upon who you talk to. Smart except for the 18 years I allowed myself to get sucked into the Microsoft Black Hole when in 1990 or so I switched from a Mac SE to an IBM whatever running Windows 3.1/95. Even worked for Gateway, MS & HP for a couple of years fixing their Win-based stuff. Rectified that blackhole sidetrack in 2007 when I gave up on XP for good & went & bought myself a Titanium Powerbook on eBay. Transitioning back to Mac was difficult & frustrating for several weeks at first, but now, with my 7,1 all-white Macbook that I've replaced the orig 250HDD with a 256GB Crucial SSD & the orig 2GB RAM with the max of 8GB of Crucial RAM (I can even run OSX without virtual memory enabled), + added emulated Windows 7 Ultimate running inside VMWare Fusion, + emulated Windows XP running inside Virtual PC (a setup from MS called "XP Mode" for Win7) that I run inside the emulated Windows 7 Ultimate when it's running (did the nesting just to see if it'd work. It does.), I think I've got the bases covered. And btw, for anyone interested, 8GB of RAM is an absolute necessity if you want to run VMWare Win7 and the emulated XP within OSX in addition to any co-running OSX apps. Real RAM-suckers, both of them.
Above average expertise in both Mac OSX & Windows, up to Win7, which is plenty. But under the hood, all Windows are basically all the same clunky OSs anyway, right? Just different lipsticks...
