Mac OS X How this passed through Apple's Mountain Lion testing is beyond me. "If one edits a document, then chooses Save As, then BOTH the edited original document and the copy are saved, thus not only saving a new copy, but silently saving the original with the same changes, thus overwriting the original." Just goes to show: do not mess with my ability to save my stuff. There is no one-size-fits-all for this kind of delicate stuff.

There we can agree ;)

On a side note, it is unbelievable how long old computers like the first-gen iMac or the PC 1512 could last without any hardware fix other than replacing batteries. My guess is that at the time, they were so expensive that failures such as that of the Geforce 7600M and 8600M was unacceptable.
