It's an anagram. :rolleyes: Pay more attention to the goings-on of HLP, Woolie.

I only care that there will be MORE people playing Fs2.

That being said, and should I ever get the chance, I WILL get an

I-lamp. That Mac owned.

The way I see it, the PC is a sedan.
Mac has to be the Aston Martin. Pretty, sleek, does the job, but nobody can afford it.

As for the one button mouse, you WILL be amazed what people can do with it.

Mac USERS, welcome to Freespace 2!  

Seems that Fs2 is planning to take over the world :drevil:
If you want to be ready for Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn, then download and play the prologue first.

It's good but you can just as easily have a dig at Microsoft

Kazan, i dont dispute that PC's are becoming increasingly better in the graphic realm, but with the whole industry based on Mac (pretty much anyway), i dont see it changing for a while.

Anyway I have a Mac and PC i hate neither and i love them both.

Who cares if you play FS on a Mac or PC?  As long as it means more people for the community, it's all good! :)

Macs are becoming rarer and rarer outside of specialist jobs, and even that is being effected as they pile more and more on the OS, OS5 and OS6 were dreams come true, OSX is like force feeding XP to Mac Owners, not a nice prospect :(
I use a PC, simply because the most software is most easily available for it, no other reason, but I know a few recording studios that use exclusively Macs, so I'm firmly in the 'Wahaaay, more people playing Freespace 2!' category ;)

LOL So because OS-X came out first means the statement doesn't apply?

Flipside said OSX was like force-feeding Windows XP to Mac owners, when in fact OSX came first. Then XP 'borrowed' most of the elements. So in fact Windows XP is like force-feeding OSX to PC owners. :ha:

BTW, I'm on a Mac right now. Does anyone have a working link to the port yet?

Interesting.  Anyways, single-tasking OS's should be sold.  :D  That's why I like DOS.  w00t  Well, DOS did run multiple drivers, but you need that.  ^ ^

I still have a DOS partition, so I can properly play legacy games like Syndicate and have full DOS4GW, HIMEM and SBPCI support. ;)
