I was hired to head up industrial design at a small startup called
'Compaq.' Each day I hauled my Mac 128 up the elvator and the CEO would
make some sort of comment about why I didn't use a Compaq, to which I
replied, "as soon as it could do what the Mac could do I'd switch."
Years later, when _that_ happened, I did. I think it was 1994. But, I
did spend 10 years with the Mac. Have to admit, I really missed the culture.
Funny thing, I've got one now, and can't stand using it. I guess it's
just what you're used to. I still don't understand why I can't resize a
window from any side :-(
And, for me, the Finder is just impossible to use compared to Explorer.
Bob LeVitus and I go around and around on that one.
