You think £218 is equivalent to $99?

Oh, my mistake. I read the currencies backwards.
We'll call it quits :P

Just so everyone is on the same page:
218 USD not GBP

I have yet to see any mention of an actual virus in this thread.
Wait, is Thork gay or does he just have a thing for lipstick?

What do you mean?  Windows 8(.x) is selling faster than they can produce licenses for it.  That is why there are no more users on Windows XP, a 13 year old operating system.

I'm gonna ask my boss about crowd sourcing it. For $300,000 we could write something that would blow that out of the water.
For $0.99 we'd only need 30,000 users to break even.

I think you need a new calculator.
Mmmm. Ok, well $9.99. Its still a hell of an improvement over $220.
That depends on which end of the $220 you're on.
Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

If Apple users are cultists, then so are anti-Apple users.

: a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous

: a situation in which people admire and care about something or someone very much or too much

: a small group of very devoted supporters or fans

If scientologists are cultists, then so are atheists.

Which many strongly religious people will be happy to confirm. The cult of science, and all that.

I think that's grasping at straws, really. There are plenty of atheists out there that don't really think about their beliefs, but they don't necessarily follow a structured belief system, or dogmatic holy texts, or God(s) and religious figures.

Zealot may have been a better word. Yes, you're an anti-Apple zealot.

Do Macs have Steam now? If so, how many games are playable?
