Antonio, cut the crap.

I *had* an intel machine for all my life. It a fancy Sony VAIO and when 
it came out it rocked. But now I will not go back not even if you gave 
me an intel machine for free, I sware to god.

As for the math above, I was forced to use stinking DivX just because 
you people wouldn't be able to support a serious video coded without 
having quicktime installed. And with quicktime, I could have encoded 
the thing in a breeze.

If the DivX plugin is piece of shit on mach-o, that's not apple's 
fault. Besides the 8 hours included the firewire importing, the video 
cutting, preprocessing and postprocessing.

On linux, you wouldn't even know where to start to do those things.

Stefano knows what's good for him better than you do, dude.

I don't tell you what to run, I'm just stating my opinions and fighting 
against misinformation about people bitching about something because 
they don't know how to use it.

But at the end, choose whatever make you happy and I'm happy. I don't 
give a shit if Apple sells another machine or not.
