    Actually, I could say that.

    -when i empty trash it takes longer and a screen pops up showing the process.
    -AirPort from time to time will just stop receiving signal

    these are the 2 most reoccurring issues im having with it. anyone else? anyone know any tricks? is this fixable? ie through settings? if so hook a Mac noob up!
    Lol these two problems are common Vista problems as well.

    Congrats Mac owners, you've just upgraded to Windows Vista.

    btw, snow leopard downgrades your version of flash to an older exploitable one, thusly opening up your "bug free" super amazing mac to whatever a hacker wants to do you. http://www.securityfocus.com/brief/1007?ref=rss

    Macs are pretty and yah they do photoshop very well, but they are NOT more secure and it is sad that people make that an argument. Everything is pretty damn bad

    quoted from Wikipedia.com
    Mac OS X is based upon the Mach kernel.[8] Certain parts from FreeBSD's and NetBSD's implementation of Unix were incorporated in Nextstep, the core of Mac OS X.

    The reason the trash was taking so long to empty was most likely because when erasing the files, it was zero'ing out those sectors on your HDD, instead of just marking them to be overwritten.

    It's much more secure to zero out your files when erasing them, but if you have no reason too then don't worry about it. :)

    I'm not biased one way or the other really. I mean, I use PC's because that's what I'm used to, but I use Macs at work and don't have a problem with them. It was just, somebody had to say it. ;)
