Dark Side, Here I Come

Today I bought the first Windows machine I’ve ever owned. I’ve used Windows machines a lot. At Human Head, I had a Windows laptop, and at Pinnacle, we had a dozen or so Windows computers, so technically I owned part of those.

This one, though, is the first that I’ve paid money for and brought into my house. Don’t get me wrong. I love my iBook, and I’m not giving it up.

This new machine, though, is for games. This is the one area in which the Mac lags. There are games for the Mac, but most of them are just ports of the Windows versions that come out months if not years after the original.

This is especially true for kids’ educational games. There are some older ones available for OS 9, but the latest Macs can’t run these at all.

So, Windows it is. Now, I just have to get my hands on some of those games.
