I Am So Old

How old am I?

Old enough that I have spent all week griping about having to do testing with a MAC.

Yes, you read that right. The little Apple machine grandmas and every yuppie or college student HAS to have because they are soooo easy has been a pain in my butt all week.

I know enough about Linux to know Apple has put a pretty little shell over the top of Linux and run it on their hardware. Obviously it works well, but for a PC only guy it drives me NUTS. I miss my right-click capability. WAH!

I guess things might have been different if I had been introduced to them when I was fighting with Windows 95 or 98 (maybe even XP) I would be a lot more receptive. I work with Windows 7, 8 and Server 2008 and beyond now. I deal with Exchange, Outlook, Active Directory, IIS etc... The MAC just seems like a clumsy fit when having to integrate in with these things.

Of course, to be fair, if I dealt with MACs more I might not be as harsh, but to plop down a wad of cash for something that doesn't work the way I want it to is not much incentive.

I shall remain, a PC (at least for now).
