As John stated in the DLL Hell thread:
"Really? How many of those links are cases of "DLL Hell'? Thats where
a program replaces an existing Windows DLL with its version. All these
are a bunch of links where a DLL is missing or corrupted. Its a pretty
safe bet that 10.3 also will suffer from missing or corrupted files due
to disk problems. As evidenced by the frequent need to trash certain
programs preference files."
This is the age-old "cheap unreliable hardware" argument that John
always runs back to when cornered about Windows' shortcomings.
Isn't it interesting that whenever Mac advocates bring up Apple's
unique ability to integrate high-quality hardware and software, the
Winidiots always blast Apple for not selling cheap commodity hardware?
Yet whenever Windows has a problem, the Winidiots always seem to blame
it on "cheap hardware." Some Winidiot always loudly trumpets the fact
that "you can get PC system X down at Fry's for $499," but whenever
Windows *** s up, the excuse is "well, what do you expect from a bargain
ba *** t PC?"
You can't have it both ways, kids. Either cheap hardware is a
benefit, or it's a curse. It's been proven that Apple's high end
machines (Dual G5s) have a significant price/performance advantage over
dual Xeon systems, yet Wintel lovers like to whine about how expensive
Macs are. If you combine this with the fact that you apparently need
high end hardware to get Windows to work properly, then it seems to me
that the Winidiot's "Macs are so expensive" argument is a straw man at best.
