Wizard,

That's strange you have to install drivers for it to charge that's for sure. Is this on your Mac? As far as I know, there is a seperate part of the USB connection that is specfically for power while the other is for data connection to computer. Take a look here: USB pinout.

No, I haven't a Mac now.
My friend has, and he is showing off! Mad

I don't know why I can't charge without a driver.
On XP, I can after "Safe Remove", but on Vista I can't.
DAMN Windows...

Look! My post will be 50'000 right now! Mr. Green

For me, there's no contest. Free/Open Source software for Windows is freely available anywhere if you know where to look. Apple's business model relies on locking the purchaser into buying expensive Apple peripherals and software. No, I don't like that windows is closed-source, but at least I have lots of choice as to what I can run on it. This will never be the case with Apple.

Saying Apple hardware is more reliable is stupid, as they all run on Intel nowadays so there's no difference. You could install windows on your mac or osx on your wintel box if they didn't go out of their way to see that you can't do that.

What kills Linux is the Tower of Babel that is all the hundreds of mutually incompatible distros all competing with each other. Nobody is going to take it seriously until they all unite under one banner and all speak the same language. Then start writing killer apps for it. They could bury M$ and Apple both.

That's my $0.02.

Maybe not so strange... My Motorola phone charges through the USB connection but won't charge from a PC unless the driver is installed.

All the components except the Intel CPU and NVidia card
are from Apple, and that's why the hardware is more reliable.
However, it's not the main factor of success.
I and my friend who has the old Macbook have done the benchmark test, some kind of competition,
and he won, don't understand why, because the hardware of my computer
is nearly 3-4 times more powerful that his. Sad Maybe this defeat was because of Vista. Rolling Eyes
All the new components used at the every new Windows version
were mounted on the old ones from the previous versions,
so, the next upgrades can't change the situation,
the only thing can save Windows is a complete remake,
but that'll bring to the times of DOS.
There's no rescue for Windows,
the future is for Linux (yes, must be United) and Mac OS X. Razz
Think that a lot of Windows users, who can't afford the powerful computer,
will choose to install Linux to their old instead of buying the Mac.

No, that's not for me. Macintosh is better than that kind of Hackintosh anyway.
Yes, you can install the Hackintosh on your computer,
but it will be unstable, and slower in several times.

im using the windows 7 beta now and its brilliant!

The same thing was with me, when I've installed Vista.
But after a two-three weeks I've realized that
it's worse than XP, but have already bought the licence
and can't return to the past.
So, I'm saving for Macbook Pro (very hard, 2000$ is a big money).
That's why I've bought a no-branded player instead of iPod.
Yes, Macs are good, because there're no computers that are so powerful,
but a lot of no-branded players can do the same things that iPods, but much more cheaper.

P.S. Please, let's go back to players-related topics,
that's better than wasting time to change someone's mind,
it's too hard and can't be changed at this topic.
To feel the difference, please, find somebody who have the Mac and try to use.
Or go to Apple's store, another option to try for free.
