this is the way iMav refered to Windows in a thread once a while back, and I have to admit, that is what I call Windows now. I am in Windows to play some games to get rid of post exam anxiety, and I just thought of this, and felt it proper to comment. I shall now slay pixels - the only thing I use XP for.

Have a nice day, and please post your hateful names for the worst OS to ever hit a Mac.

One thing that is nice about the nasty is that it helps keep us IT security types employed.

No game is worth defiling your MacBook like that...you should be ashamed of yourself!  ;)

That may be so, about me defiling my shiny Apple 'book, but sometimes in life, allI need is a good and heavy, solid bloodletting, and Windows has more options than Mac (for now).

I thought I'd need it for school, but as it turns out, I am smarter than that.

Does Alt F4 quit programs?

I need to learn some of the Nasty's shortcuts.

Alt-F4 closes a program (OS-X equiv of apple-Q).
Ctrl-F4 closes a window/document inside a program.

Thanks, I would like to know XP better, mainly because I feel so dumb for not knowing it at all.

What do the other F keys do? If you have a shortcut-link in mind to send me to, I'd love it.

You da man, ashort.
