Also, my Windows XP PC got lots of problems connecting to my USB iomega external CD-R drive. When I installed according to the manual, it keeps on detecting it as CDROM!!! I got the driver installed and re-installed many things. I had to remove from the Device Manager and re-add again few times then can work. When I plugged into Mac, I didn't even have to install the driver and OS X can detect and I can use it immediately with Burn.
That's because OSX installed a lot of printer drivers when it was first installed. Hence, it comes pre-built with most of the latest printer drivers.
No installation of printer drivers is typically required.
I admit it's user problem sometimes...but with Mac I dun have all this issues and have taken care of people like me who didn't have much IT knowledge. So, my next notebook definitely got to be a Mac!
I guess I've had too much history with Mac OS X, having used it from the public beta onward but my Canon i9900 and MP600 both needed the drivers installed. Probably by 10.4.12, they'll both be part of Mac OS X.
It's still amazing how little it takes to get things done and it seems that Windows fights you all the way but Windows XP Home is much better than Professional in helping you with simple things. Administering the machine with Home seems a nightmare.
What day 1? You mean you own Lisa?

Where words fails, music and picture speaks
Started with Amiga Computers (1000, 500, 2000)...went to Apple Computers (FX, iMac)...then to PC and stuck to it ever since. I don't know about you folks but I like building my own PCs the last decade and beyond. And here is the funny thing...I rarely have a problem with it. And if it did, it is not always Windows fault. And I am not a light weight user too..all my PCs gets a very good workout from my designing work, hard core gamming, multimedia...etc.
Mac is good if only i can use it to play games......
That's what PS and XBox and Wii are for.
I'm personally glad there are little games on Mac to tempt me. And it is this fact that makes the Mac good for students->Let them concentrate on the real work.
Well, I'm a complete computer illiterate when I bought my first computer, which is a Mac. Thank God for that as I never really gotten hooked on gaming.
My son too, had been on a Mac since age of 3, and even now that I bought him an Intel Mac and install Windows, we'd just play a couple of FIFA 07 games, and then get bored. On the average, we spend less than 1 hour on games per week.
