Anyone know if Apple is planning to release 10.5 in October or is this still a while off. I haven't heard boo and none of my Mac friends have really said anything either. Usually I hear them squawking about six months in advance when they get beta releases.

Yes, I need to experience Vista before deciding if it is good or bad for me. If it sucks, oh well, at least I have something more to learn about. I personally think that Dell is great, my school uses Dell and quite a few people around my town uses Dell also (some use Acer because the local computer shop sells Acer systems).
I am definitely thinking about getting Core 2 Duo, that was my first instinct. I do think Macintosh computers are expensive and again, too easy to use. I was wondering about Skype on AMD processors because of this: http://www.news.com/2100-1006_3-6044365.html.
Anyways, I'll see if we can reach an agreement sometime soon (hopefully before 2008).

Wow, Mark, that's a story! I absolutely hate citrix with all my heart. My vocational school uses it to provide students with Office 2003, network file shares and other things. My Cisco teacher is also anti-citrix because it's gotta load everything from the web and our proxy server likes to cut internet connections after they're idle for X minutes to free up resources so if you haven't saved, you'll get a message saying "Your connection to the Citrix server has been terminated" or whatever and poof! There goes Word with everything. Another thing I hate is sometimes I can't get to MY My Computer and will end up at the server's. Same with Control Panel.
I'd be using SuSE as my primary OS if everything I did didn't require the use of Windows. I know I'd be running my laptop on Linu but darn Averatec hardware seems to favor Windows over anything else (if I set a switch, I can install just about any flavor of Linux I so please but I won't have USB nor PCMI support which laptops are worthless without.). Just another reason why I hope MS falls. But the good news is I'm working on getting my Cisco teacher to switch us over to SuSE linux. Finally, Linux in a classroom! Even most of the class seems to agree. Even though we need Windows, we could probably dual boot.
