    What is REALLY funny...

    re-read the very first post:

    This has NOTHING to do with Mac vs. PC vs. Linux..

    To answer the question...

    No, I personally don't think Windows and OSX will merge into one large company. Microsoft already battles "monopoly" issues in frivolous court battles every year, doing so would just cause more problems for the new "Macdows" company that became of it.

    In anything, there will always be a David and a Goliath, it is just how humans work.

    Those things are true to an extent about Macs, but that macs them sound terrible.
    Yeah, jeez, he forgot about how Mac's never get viruses. But then again, isn't that because 95% (completely made up abstract statistic) of poeple use PC over Mac? Logically, if you were going to be a (insert 4 letter word of choice), you would go after the one that had the majority of people on it... Would be nice to see Apple get their asses handed to them though in their "No Viruses" campaign...

    No need to talk this way. I don't think that they will ever merge into one massive company. People do and are set in their ways and put there rather quickly when young. It also has to do with what their parents use and think is good or not. When I first was arguing with my padre (being old and set in his ways) about this I used this point: If Microsoft and Apple did combine into one massive company, not only would they be sued by everyone for monopolizing things, but hundreds if not thousands of companies would go out of business. Thus, Millions of people would be out of a job and if they did that then not alot of people would want to or be able to buy any of their machines. I am not arguing Linux because they don't make computers, at least that I know of. JF

    They don't make computers the same way Windows and OSX don't. But you CAN buy a computer pre-installed with *Nix OS just as you can with Windows or OSX, and those are priced about the same as a Windows PC.

    Probably due to it being left over from the British influence on America during the 1800s. I dunno.
    It's still a word and people of moderate intelligence know what it means.

    I think of fortnight and score in the same sense.... both are outdated descriptions of days. Is score still in use there?

    Well, a score is an actual number (20), nothing to do with days necessarily.

    Only rarely, and mostly in estimates (and, stereotypically, agriculture).
