That is spot on. The "time remaining" is indeed so spastically random it's almost useless.

Thanks for the reminder why I switched to the Mac and the iPhone. THANKS!

Here's the reason why I stayed with the PC.

...'cause I can deal with the fact of useless "time remaining" info one hell of a lot easier than I can with all the crap listed in the link above.

Very good video, OBH. I won't get a Mac until they include a two-button mouse.

My two-button mouse works great on the Mac. Left click, right click.

I have both Windows and Leopard (Mac) OS on this mac-mini. I can run them side by side. When I am working on the PC side, I get constant reminders as to why I switched to the Mac -- such as "there are unused icons on your desktop" "your anti-virus protection is out of date"... and so on... endless series of pop-up windows. "Do you want to download updates?" "Do you want to buy this software?"

I DON'T LIKE INTERRUPTIONS -- AND THESE ARE WORTHLESS INTERRUPTIONS. I don't like blondes, either, but I loathe the PC. Bill Gates is the anti-christ. He made more money than he could ever put to reasonable use while making us miserable, and now he is giving most of it to people that didn't earn it and don't deserve it.

I am so happy I went back to Mac. I am also sticking with brunettes and redheads.

So if you like PC's or blondes -- go ahead. My only question -- will you support the coming government bailout of Microsoft? Microsoft will fail as a company in our lifetime.
