The Sensible OS Pricing Award to Apple Computer, for charging $129 for one copy of OS X Panther, but a very affordable $199 for a five-license family pack.

Does MS get title sponsorship of the Security/Stability OS Hall of Shame?
Do they win the award for most shipping bugs and known vulnerabilities?
Oh wait... it's PC World. Never mind.

Longhorn is the hall of shame

Lose the tiny wires. Building a PC shouldn't require the steady hands of a grizzled FBI bomb squad veteran. A standardized block connector could easily replace those little wires that go from your case to the motherboard. Until then, remember: It's always the green wire.
Yeah, block connector...or a G5 would solve all those problems. Just another way Macs are better, always have been, always will be. Not only do they Just Work , they look better too, inside and out.
Observe exhibit A:


Screw block connectors, get a G5.

Come waste your time with me

Actually, as far as I know Apple already uses a block connector for all the case headers - Power, reset, programmer's switch, and speaker, all connected in a single block that goes to the motherboard. I really wish PCs would do that. Having built a couple myself I have to say that is the most annoying part.
