when i got office 2007 and it would not install
on my older xp version, i knew it was the end.
no more upgrades, no more stuff i can't stand,
no more wait for the bug to get fixed.
enough.
so what do i need to know about apple products,
cause i am not gonna live with this crap anymore.

I switched to Apple a dozen years ago, and have never looked back; until now. Part of the ability of Apple to produce a powerhouse platform was their choice of processor. Now that they have gone to Intel, a fair amount of that edge has been lost. Intel is half the battle with respect to platform stability, and now that is beginning to haunt Apple.

I would say that given the cost threshold, you may want to consider going to a linux OS build on your current hardware and see if that does not do it for you...

Try Ubuntu Linux-distro, it should be as easy as Windows to install and to use.

Just stick to your current WINXP and install Open Office...

It will open and save as Excel files if you want...

If you want, you can go to Linux (I use a few distros for different things)...PCLOS, Mepis, Puppy v2.15CE all have it way over Ubuntu...

Ubuntu is good, but not as intuitive coming from a WINxx mindset...MAC people walk into Ubuntui with no trouble, but the original install is heavy on system packages, but not very comprehensive on Apps and utilities...They are all installable on demand though...

Try Kubuntu...It is Ubuntu with a KDE desktop which seems 'easier' for n0065 walking in from Windows...

The first thing you should know about the current generation of Macs, is that they are simply PC's running a different operating system, since they switched over to the x86 architecture.

So, save yourself a lot of dough and just install Mac OS X Leopard on your current PC.

I use windows at work, and a mac at home. Windows is junk. If they were cars, windows would have been left at the side of the road years ago.

I have had XP installed for over a year and so far no problems. I use OpenOffice, a free anti-virus software, flowers, system cleaner and everything runs smooth.
