Ahaha, very funny Meltdoofus. I doubt Micron will buy AMD, but if they do, if teh processors are still better than Intel's, it's all good. BTW, meltdown, do u work for intel or something?

I saw that rumor over at HardOCP, but they didn't have any proof that there was even a rumor going around.
I'd ignore it, at least for now.

You guys are all mixed up I think. The Mac OS is amazing and has been ahead of Windows ever since it came out. Us computer geeks only like Windows because DOS is still there and those lines of boring code make us feel smart.

Anyways I just built a 1.4GHZ AMD system so don't flame me too much....I just get bored of hearing people say they don't like Macs when they probably don't even own one.

like AMD and INTEL we need APPLE and MICROSOFT for good ol competition!

The reason I argue that mac isn't good is that although I don't own one, I have used it. I find that the hardware was rather old compared to what one could get with PC's, and also that the OS just pisses me off.

Since when is Mac competition for Microsoft? I disagree. Microsoft has enough of a market share that I don't think they really care what anyone else is doing at the moment.

The Mac OS is amazing! It <b>never</b> crashes!

...of course, since there are no programs to run on said OS, that point is moot.

Macs suck.

This rumor must have been started by someone that hasn't looked at the financials of the two companies.

While Micron has a whole 300 million more in on hand cash, they also posted a horrible loss.. over 500 million for the quarter...which is more than their gross sales for the quarter.

Contrast this with AMD, a company that has a nice amount of cash on hand and much better numbers for the quarter (assuming the 15% decrease in gross sales AMD estimated near the end of August....prior to WTC bombing)

The two companies just don't *fit*

Do not forget that Bill Gates is the majority owner of Apple. In essence, he owns it.

Is he now? Last I heard, he only had a significant amount of stock (a few percent or so). I didn't realize he had the majority of it. Interesting. When did that happen?

And BunnyStroker, as per my conversations with (fairly) open and honest Mac users, Mac OS <font color=red>was</font color=red> the OS that never crashed. Apparently OS X crashes almost as much as Windows :) 
Trust Apple to screw up Unix.

Since when? I know that both companies own fair shares of EACH OTHER, but since when does Microsoft own Apple?

As for the rest of you: For the love of god take a finance course. I can't believe the rumor mills that are running. They are based on absolutely nothing. What next? Is Cisco going out of business as well? Ridiculous.

Bill Gates, not Microsoft. I believe that's what Raystonn meant. There is a difference, though one that might not make much difference.

By the way, I heard that Starbucks is buying Microsoft, is that true?

LOL! I don't mind a bit, I know you're belligerent and frustrated, who wouldn't be, working nights just to make $25 an hour would make anyone pissed.

one more thing, apple is really really a bad buy, money value is low cmpared to PC'es, good or sometimes any hardware/software support is quite hard to come by for MAC ose's.
the mac os works difrently then windows(in a bad way) they spent too mcuh time in graphic interface BS then in the usabilitty of some stuf they put in..

and i just HATE the 1 button mouse!pisses me off..
