QuickTime - The absolute slowest and
worst program ever invented. It took about twenty minutes
for my PC to update to the latest version. What's more,

There didn't used to be a right

uses Macs, and I've only met two people who do. So help
me out; send me your Mac Gripes. Or better still, send me
It's Unix now. I know that
Macs never screw up, but if they ever do--it takes a Ph.D. to
