Hardware, Embedded Systems "NeXT Computer (the original 68030 cube) was a high end workstation that was manufactured between 1988 - 1990. Back then it was a very expensive machine as a complete system would start at $6500 (in 1988 dollars). The machine is a 1 foot cube magnesium case that houses the computer. At the time, its performance was impressive, with a Motorola 68030 CPU running at a screaming 25Mhz, a dedicated floating point CPU, and a digital signal processor built into the system. NeXT cubes featured a magneto-optical drive that stored a whopping 256 Megabytes (by comparison, high end Mac systems at the time might have featured a 20 Megabyte hard drive.) In its day, this was the "Ferrari" of desktop systems!" No new information for the average OSNews reader, but lots of beautiful photos for a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

Why does every thread have to descend into "why I hate Windows 8?" I don't like it, which is why I don't use it. But that's just me. You don't like it either? Don't use it.

This is really starting to get old.

Somebodies just want flame-wars everywhere.

They don't pay for it.
They don't use it.
They aren't affected by it.

They still have their own freedom to choose what they want.

But they still yelling at it and try to restrict the others' freedom to pay for it/ use it. (Of course, they can't do it physically, so they do it verbally, spreading wrong/ outdated information.)

Don't like it? Yeah, then don't talk about it and ignore it as if it doesn't exist.

I think this kind of culture becomes popular since Apple's "PC vs Mac" advertisements. I think this just spreads hate everywhere and brings negative impact on people mind.

Yes it is off-topic but those flame-wars are polluting the discussion environment.
