Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

The [Chat], not about Macs or WoW. Possibly about butts.

    I'm rolling troll druid when they become available, going to be my first healer ever.

    nice, I like healing, only lvl 80 I had was a resto shaman.

    Troll druids have an awesome treeform (thats a short term buff, but still it looks hella cool), and with encouraging healers to damage as well as heal, can't wait to give it a go.

    This is funny because the LHC control sytems mostly run LynxOS for anything that actually manages hardware, and Red Hat for most of the rest.

    OSX is closer to either of those than Windows is.

    I might agree with that for a lappy. But even then it isn't 1k important. That just means you have more money than sense.

    And for desktops that doesn't matter.

    I hate pics like this. I really wish both sides of issue would just shut the fuck up and not criticise the other's product. It's childish, and dumb.

    It's a ton worse that Apple's advertising campaigns rely on making PCs looking dumb though. Makes me lose respect for them. Not an honourable way to win (like smearing your political opponent's name to win an election).

    When people ask me about the pros and cons of an iPhone vs a Droid

    I still haven't found a better comparison than Mac vs a PC.

    One is a lot more open, and you can do more with it if you don't mind playing with it a bit to get it to work how you want.

    The other isn't quite as customizable, but at the same time is much more user friendly right out of the box.

    Really just depends what kind of experience you're looking for.

    Well it depends on whether you are looking at software or hardware. Software-wise the two are pretty much identical. Hardware-wise, though, you have more freedom to do what you want with a PC. With a Mac you get something that's well supported and built extremely well. The reasons for owning either are different.

    Some of the ThinkPad logos glow. The dots above the I.

    And that is why I can only recommend Macbook Pros and ThinkPads to people.

    It's true.

    Also: Androids, like PCs, vary largely in quality and user experience. And, like Windows, one of the most common causes of poor performance and reliability is having too much shit running in the background.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
