yes bro Mac is soo "NO! you can't be compatible with anything except us! O you want the normal lap top charger? NO! You have to buy the extra expensive, online delivery only MAC Laptop Charger!

_____________

customer: Hi I bought some songs on iTunes but i decided to get a zune instead, but the songs won't work on my Zune?!?

MAC: NO NO NO! You bought iTunes Songs, not Songs. They only for iPod! NO NO!

customer: But wow i paid for them?!?

MAC: suck it up! buy another iPod!

______________

MAC: Hi, I'm a MAC, and I'm an "media computer". If you want to be good in art or music, you must by teh MAC!

Customer: Oh ok, what kind of programs do you have?

MAC: we have best! we have Photoshop!

Customer: wow! ... wait isn't photoshop on PC too? Aren't PCs waay cheaper on average? Aren't they waay more compatible with outside software? You mean to tell me MAC is the best at "media and arts" but they use the exact same software?

MAC: Yes! YES! YES! We good, PC suck. We look cool, our windows move around like jello when you minimize or shift them around!

Customer: O yeah, thats cool :) i've seen that on Linux before myself. O and they are open source. Free stuff. All the time. And they don't have that lame one button mouse either.

MAC: We have one click mouse for good reason! It make us special! Make us unique! We cool!

Customer: well you have to draw the line somewhere between whats really cool and whats really useful...

MAC: NO! NO we don't! Thats why we make even more cool stuff! like a moniter that is a computer by itself! It look real cool!

Customer: O so when that screen dies and the computer itself works fine though, how do i get the computer separate from the moniter?

MAC: you don't! You buy new MAC! Thats how we make money! Thats why we come out with a new Computer and iPod every week! Nothing lasts!

Customer: ...Hello Linux/PC :)

lemme tell you why mac sucks (and windows is getting bad too)

Written By: Ajit
Based on a True Story

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT! THE MAC WAY!!!!

John Doe walks into Radio Shack. "hi i would like to replace my broken laptop charger for my mac."
store manager: HAHA sorry but im afraid you will have to buy an entire laptop in order to receive your desired charger. $699 please.
John Doe: but i just want a charger worth $40 bucks at the most. I thought laptop chargers were universal....?
Store Manager: sorry, currently the "Universal Chargers" are only universal for Microsoft. Perhaps you should try Best Buy. They have an entire section dedicated to Apple.
John Doe: ok, but gas prices suck and i have to travel all across town...

*john doe drives across town to Best Buy*

John Doe: hello, where is the Apple Section?
Best Buy Worker: over there *points to the tiny far left corner of the store*
John Doe: I thought Best Buy was advertising an Apple Store inside of Best Buy... Its only 2 aisles of products...?
Best Buy Worker: well thats what we thought too, but it turns out that we only received the newest products to sell.
John Doe: So I guess you wouldn't have a laptop charger *Interrupted*
Best Buy Worker: Oh yeah we have plenty of chargers, they are universal after all.
John Doe: Wow thanks here is the model name of my Macbook....
Best Buy Worker: Uhmm actually I thought you had a regular laptop. Sorry, we don't sell that model of laptop charger.
John Doe: But it is only a one year old model....?
Best Buy Worker: Perhaps you should try the closest Official Apple Store.
John Doe: OK! good idea, where is the official apple store?
Best Buy Worker: *names city that is 250 miles away*
John Doe: No, I meant where is the closest Official Apple Store?
Best Buy Worker: that is the closest store
John Doe: Ohh....

*John doe travels the 250 miles, but only two weeks later when he finally has the time to travel that far. Now it has been quite a while since he has had a working computer*

John Doe: hello, I would like to replace this charger with a working one. I assume the warranty I have on my laptop covers this?
Apple Worker: Ohh yes, of course it covers it! Of course, i assume you bought this laptop in the past 60 days?
John Doe: No it is a little over a year old.
Apple Worker: Uhm, actually after such a period of time, Only the laptop itself is still under warranty.
John Doe: Oh that sucks.
Apple Worker: here is your charger!
John Doe: Thanks, how much will that come to?
Apple Worker: $80.00 please
John Doe: Oh no i guess you misunderstood me, i just want the charger, nothing else.
Apple Worker: yes, $80.00 please
John Doe: Oh I thought the chargers at Radio Shack were only $40.00 dollars.
Apple Worker: yes, generally the universal ones are only $40.00

*John Doe leaves feeling much lighter. Thats because he is much lighter. He lost over 20lbs in cash.*

basically the moral of the story is that windows sucks, mac sucks worse, and Linux rules for being free

I really though that wasnt possible because I searched for it before and was dissapointed it wasnt there.
Ah well I will download it as soon as its on the gimp.org site (now it gives the original download link to 2.4.7)

Thanks Gimper downloading 2.6 right now!

I just checked gimp.org, it is on their site on the big download button now too.
Though I cant find 'Preferences' anymore...

Nevermind it is under the Tab 'Edit'
