MacOS on my iMac.. Not as stable as I thought

Posted by the dood on Friday, August 3rd, 2007

My MacOS “crashes” every once in a while, and I’m not quite sure why. I get this garbled screen of death, which cannot be recovered from except when I push the power button, then the screen goes away and its back to normal.

Here’s a screen cap of the screen… oddly, Mac’s screen cap feature works just fine when its giving me the static garble that it usually does… so take a look:

Other problems I have are with the Mac built-in Calculator widget… not the problems with the Calculator app that’s in the applications, but the one in the dashboard… I suppose you can argue that its not part of the Mac, but poor programming, but it was packaged with it. I don’t completely buy this whole ad campaign that Mac has going against PC, about how the PCs are so much more confusing to use, etc etc. As I type this on a Mac, I must say I like using my PC better still. It has less problems with it, at least when it’s set up properly.
