Losing Faith In Your Mac? Read This Chilling Windows Account
Steve Burgess of offers a chilling story about his Wintel box that should be held up by Apple as an example of why one should buy a Mac. In the story, Mr. Burgess found his copy of IE no longer functioning and after long and earnest phone calls with his ISP's tech support, the verdict was he had to reinstall Windows! The trouble didn't stop there either, so go and read this excellent story. Mr. Burgess is an outstanding writer. If he would only get a Mac, he might enjoy it more... :-)

The story is called "Briefing for a descent into computer hell," and can be found at

Thanks to Observer Jeff Kievlan for pointing us to this story.

The Mac Observer Spin: You have to love it when they tell the stories themselves... :-)
