Greetings fellow Mac enthusiasts, I am Elias26! I have been a Mac user for six years now. I can remember when it all started. Seemed just like yesterday. It was the Spring of 2000 and I got my first ever Apple computer, a Special Edition G3 iMac! She was a beaut at 400 MHz. However, as beautiful as she was, I knew one day I would out grow her and I would have to trade her up for one ugly mean SOB... a Dual G5 PowerMac. *imagine myself making that infamous sound Tim Allen would make everytime he really liked something on Home Improvement* That's the kind of love I am feeling for my new Mac.
Now don't get me wrong, I never wanted to part ways with my sweetheart of old, but she was far behind the times. That, and the applications I tried to push on to her was too much gusto for the old woman. If I wasn't into such demanding pro applications I would still be using her till this day. But alas, I have to move on.
Prior to being an avid Mac user of the past six years, I used to be a PC user. A PC user that actually loathed anything to do with Apples. I know! I am just as shocked as the rest of you. Well... not really, since I was once upon a time a PC user. Mainly because I was lied to by the Winblows community that PCs were superior to Macs in every way, shape, and form.
After 2 and a half years of getting that dreaded "Illegal Operation" message that popped on my screen 3-5 times a day! Not to mention all the crashes, and the virus I got, thanks to that little happy.exe file I had opened... I nearly lost it! So I chucked my Winblows 95 machine, and said to hell with what the PC community had to say about Apples, and six years later I been the happiest guy in the world with his machines. Not once did I have to bring in my iMac for repairs. Infact there is not a single thing wrong with my G3 iMac! That blows me away! And for the 4-5 weeks I have had my DP G5, I have had yet to experience a single system crash.
God I love Macs, and I want to share my love of Macs and all things Apple with you, the online Canadian Apple community!
P.S. Sorry for the novel, but that's just who I am. Hope you guys can deal. :P
