I spotted at least one well known artist who used the Amiga in former times ;-) Guess who...

Wow.  That was a shiny bit of revisionist history.

Not to say a Mac isn't a great creative tool....but it isn't and wasn't the ONLY such tool, nor was it the first such tool.

@persia,
Last I heard this was an Amiga site, if you want to say happy birthday to a Mac go to a Mac site they will appreciate it more. I have a mini mac, it is a very good door holder, but for using it as a computer, I would prefer a sinclair more, it has more power. Heck even a Radio Shack TRS 80 model 1 was better to use.
The only good use for a Mac is a fish tank, uh let me take that back it would probably kill the fish.
The only good use for a Mac is a pigeon house, that way if it kills the pigeons no one would really care.
If I had a Mac, I would set it up in the middle of my yard for my dogs to pee on.
It is a heck of a thing when you buy a Mini Mac and find out that the OS system you where planning to put on it costs 10 times more than the computer.
but
That is just about right for a Apple product.
I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

Since I use Macs, my opinions on this should strike some as odd, but I never really cared for the Macintosh.
The early models were a fabulous waste of a great processor.
I use some of the PPC models to run MorphOS.
But even though I have OSX on a couple of machines, when I want a mainstream OS I switch to a Windows platform.

Jobs' pet project never really impressed me.
A collection of borrowed and stolen ideas slickly marketed at higher than reasonable prices.
If you were dumb enough to fall for it, that's your problem.

Even the ST was better than the Macintosh.

Easy, it has to be one of the few models that are capable of running MorphOS.
Load that, presto, better than Amiga.

We should merge this thread with the bill gates thread. Pointless needs pointless  ;)
