    OK, let's get to the basics:

    Can you cook a meal? Can you cook more than one type of meal?
    Can you sow and mend clothes?
    Can you run a family household on, say, £90,-- a week?

    Believe it or not, there are ordinary people who can (some can even look after a baby!); there are computer geeks who can't. I'd say they are pretty essential life skills myself.

    And as a PC user, I consider DOS pretty essential too (never know when Windows goes down on you and there's just you and an emergency boot disk) but that's just me.
    No offence dude, but if you don't know DOS you have no right to call an Apple user an idiot.

    There are Apple users who have never had the need to learn how to swap or format a HDD, or expand the memory. They think that if they have reason to, they will --else they'll get the Apple shop to do it. Again, nothing wrong with that.

    :clap:

    I can't remember the last time I used DOS... A Linux LiveCD/LiveUSB is far more effective for system repair :thumb: :D

    But you of course know that Steam is also coming with some Valve games ... ?

    Yes, but that does not change the fact that Steam is not a game.

    The quote only uses Steam as evidence of there being more games for Mac, no mention was made of the various Valve games for Mac being sold through Steam. According to just that quote the only thing coming to Macs on 12th May is Steam, and Steam is not a game. It fails to prove Rickysio incorrect.

    The sentence above would have worked.

    Gavomatic87's post was worded in a way such that he/she was saying that it is if one was to read it very literally. Just giving a little "taste of your own medicine" for being so literal when reading Rickysio's claim that "There's no games for Mac". We all know what both parties meant by their respective posts, just making sure that when people try to get semantic they are ready to have their own statements scrutinized.
