Gar! Converted!

So I'm sitting here at G's desk in our office, wrangling with audio files in an attempt to create a CD to play at the wedding when the band's on break. (Besides which, a jazz quartet won't be able to play necessities such as Earth, Wind, and Fire, the B52s, or Jamiroquai.) One of the music programs won't let me preview the CD or import Barry White; the other won't let me import Earth, Wind, and Fire. Neither program will let me open anything in a new window.

You know what? I've become a Mac person! Just now! I join the fanatical Jobs-worshipping masses. I wash my hands of PCs. You are dead to me.

Addendum: I just called G., who talked me off the ledge. He said, "Why are you copying Barry White from MediaJukebox?"

I said, "Because that's where it IS."

He said, "Why don't you copy it directly from the hard drive?"

I said, "Where IS the hard drive?"

He said, incredulously, "You don't know where the hard drive is?"

I screeched, "I'm used to MACS!"

He said, "You used PCs until a couple years ago."

I screeched, "I'm used to hitting command-K and getting whatever I need! And why can't I open ANYTHING in a new WINDOW?"

He said, "What's command-K?"

I said, victoriously, "See? You couldn't use a Mac!"

He said, "You can open a new window by hitting shift as you click on it. Don't break my computer."

Welcome to the anti-dark side!

This morning I attended a presentation on Microsoft's new operating system, Vista, that'll be released in January, and it's pretty cool--for a Microsoft product. It's got some neat little features (some of which will just be confusing or never accessed by your average user), but other things they totally copied from Apple, like the Spotlight and Dashboard functions.

So Vista will be nice--better than XP--but Macs still kick Windows butt.

Larry: Thanks, that's encouraging.

Ann: Thanks! Nice to be here. Right now I've ditched the other music programs, and I'm making the CD using iTunes on a PC. That says something.
