  actually "DOS" (meaning MS-DOS I guess) was a better item to name
  than MacOS/OSX. Every fool today knows about OSX but they won't use
  it because they can't run their games on the G3/G4. Still they'll
  use the Aqua Desktop theme...

  When a LUser still can name "DOS" (MS-DOS) I usually count that as a
  good sign.

  Sticking to the current OT-Topic: Is she cute? ;-)
