Someone stop me

Here’s something you might not expect me to say: “I’m thinking about picking up a copy of Windows.”

I know, it’s crazy talk. Why would I pollute a perfectly good Mac with XP, or (shudder) Vista? Cheryl keeps asking me the same thing, and I don’t have a good answer for any of you. Maybe it’s just because I can. Maybe it’s because I want to experience the magic of a Windows installation myself.

I can’t imagine actually using the thing – my Windows jones is more than satisfied at the office. I suppose I might fire it up every so often to take advantage of the “watch it now” feature on Netflix – who’ve been talking about a Mac version for about a year. (Has anyone put copyrighted/multiplatform content on the internet before?).

The best case scenario is it sits on my hard drive taking up space. The worst? I brick my iMac.

Hey bro! Come on over to my place for a gigger!

Give the gift of words.
