That was no lady, that was another tiger

Not much to choose between them, but you definitely don’t want both:

DO NOT INSTALL IE8 ON VISTA HOME PREMIUM!!!!!

Any time you can get more than one exclamation point out of Steven Den Beste, you have to figure he really means it.

    Amen on the superiority of the Mac world, she said, having used both. Those who say the PC is just like the Mac have never used a Mac.

    I have used a Mac enough to know that the things they excel at are things I have no aptitude for: graphics and music–I can only look and listen. My stick people look terrible and chopsticks is beyond me.

    The Mac and PC are different and very much so, but in ways that benefit me not and therefore can in no way justify the cost.

    SDB asks rhetorically whether IE8 is really still in beta. Well, I have a theory about that. I think Microsoft has gone to a revolutionary new process wherein as soon as a product goes out of true beta (as opposed to nominal beta) they stop supporting it. This way they can devote their full resources to tweaking the next version in the beta stream.

    I’m not sure I’m really kidding.

    Yeah, if only the automatic updates did not brick my eMac. These things happen to Macs, but Mac cultists don’t hold onto their shiny toys long enough for them to happen.
