Mac vs PC

You've probably seen the real adverts and the many parodies. Some are good, some are bad, and most of them have made mistakes. I've grabbed Scott Olson's version of the music, and after seeing the South Park parody, I'm thinking of creating my own parodies based on the following dialogue:

Mac: Hello. I'm a Mac.
PC: And I'm a PC.
Mac: I can run Mac OS X and Windows.
PC: I can run almost any operating system. Aside from OS X.
Mac: We run a lot of the same programs, like Microsoft Office.
PC: So when's Apple going to let me run iLife? Or OS X?
Mac: *looks down at his shoes, shuffles feet*
PC: Oh look, the new Office for Mac got delayed.

Mac: Hello. I'm a Mac.
PC: And I'm a PC.
Mac: I'm safe to use on the internet, Windows viruses don't affect me.
PC: I thought you could run Windows now?
Mac: Oh yeah, I can... *cough*
PC: What was that? It sounded like a cough.
Mac: You'd better stay back, I think my copy of Windows has an infection.
PC: That's okay. I'm running Slackware Linux.

I like the last one because it highlights the frequent assumption that PC is running a version of Windows (and that Mac is running OS X).

haha. what an amusing co-incidence. I just PMed you about a Mac. My mate in the office (Talanzar) just got himself a Mac Mini which he will use as a TV/browsing machine. He says he has been blown away by how nice and user friendly it is. It does look cool and it is ideal for what he wants to use it for. Decent power, small, looks good, has a remote, no heat or noise etc. He has been genuinely surprised by how nice the software is.

Having said all that, he will still be using his PC quite a lot as the Mac is good, but not a complete replacement. He has found stuff like the Mac version of the VLC player and Handbrake to be really good, there are PC equivalents are there not?
