Hi it's me again, "The New Guy" here at 123MacMini...

Seeing as I'm a recent switcher (patiently awaiting apple to update my order status from 'preparing shipment' to 'shipped, have a nice day!') I was wondering if any of you have seen this video. As a PC user I found it quite funny, and it actually scared me out of switching a while back. The video is a few years old now I think, but it's still really funny, and I'll bet some of you longterm mac users can relate to this guy.

Be aware he does use some foul language in some stages of his 'frustration' I believe.

Here's the link:
http://www.happynowhere.net/mac_parody.php

It helps to read the paragraph on the site before/after watching the video. The guy is just poking fun at Macs, and admits he loves Apple, the video is purely entertainment value.

Enjoy!

Ironically, my browser crashed on my mini after watching that video.

Even when I was a windows user I hated that video- most of those things he mentions are windows problems.

It's a joke, there's no reason to get all antsy over it. He's actually a Mac user and does all of his work on a Mac. Besides, that video is REALLY old and OS X has evolved a lot since then.

Um, I'm aware. Just because I am a new mini user doesn't mean i'm new to the internet pal Wink I'm not getting "antsy" over anything. I remember the video from years ago and remember his acting group site that it was originally posted on, eh.

Just wanted to make sure. I think that part of the umor with the movie is that the problems he mentions are on Windows as well. That seems like its kind of stretch though.
