I started with an Apple II as many did in those days. Just kind of 
got into the PCs and haven't looked at Mac since. My rather 
pedestrian uses can be well served by either, so I will probably do 
a shop on Power Mac when the time is ripe. Lots of inertia  and 
vesting to overcome, though.

Boy, there's an appellation that I am seldom given.  8^)  Had an 
original Nikon F and used it for years with a few lenses. Wish I still 
had it. I'd put its 'fit and finish' up against today's Rs anytime.
