I'm starting to save up money for a Mac now. I figure if there's a computer 
out there that will do what I need it to do and will basically come out of 
the box talking, I'll go for it. Yes, I'll probably have to do some advocacy 
if some programs aren't all that doable, but I don't see a problem in 
sending some polite e-mails to companies if that's what it takes. I'm sure 
I'm not the only one excited about what has developed with the Mac.

Hey, if people want alternatives, I believe the answer is most likely yes.
I have to be honest when I say that I have absolutely no interest in using
a mac, since Windows and JAWS serve their purposes just fine for me.  That
doesn't necessarily mean I won't ever try a Mac, but for now, this works.
