Macs are superior to windows in terms of operating stuff, but they don't have the program variety of windows. Proof of this? Fun Fact: The "I'm a PC" commercials were made on Macs.

UNIX rules It's invincable
to viruses but not hackers

Mac has one virus but it only
exists on porn popups

Windows 3.1,and XP are good
97,98,2000,and vista are junk

I've never seen a linux but I here
if you know about programming
then they work great.

On the subject of computers
I thought you could make a smart
one by adding a construct to mess
with the files as a standard up grade
to the processor.

Yeah, my mac does a *FANTASTIC* job "operating" programs I haven't opened in four months with 98% of my processor capacity, including the 98% of my processor capacity which I had just assigned to go to a different program. It's seriously a world class operator in those situations. Not even joking.

Psi-seeker: no.

Come on if one wanted to spend years working on it they could make a construct that would reprogram a computer by remagnitizeing the hard drive causing programs to evolve slowly if it didn't cause them to degrade beyond repair instead.

To paraphrase someone else I read over here on the Psion Guild: I'll ignore that sentence to preserve my sanity.

Anyhow, Pavlov's Dog is right about the OS'es... I program and still find it way easier to do so on Windows, as opposed to Linux, Mac or anything else.

Well, to return to the topic: most people who've replied seem to think that there's only two choices in this matter:
1. Lead a normal life, die a normal death.
2. Become immortal and live forever.

I'd like to add a choice of my own, which is what I would do if it were at all possible:
3. Live as long as you want and have, figuratively, "seen it all", die when you get bored of life.

I agree with that 3rd option.

Ironically, Death makes Life interesting.

No, the fear of death makes life interesting; they're more different than they seem.

A good way to understand that is to look at those who're convinced that a better life exists in the afterlife: they simply can't wait to pass away.

I am one such person but for me it goes farther because oblivion is better
than life because there is no pain or joy in oblivion which would be better than
life has ever treated me.
