5 Reasons IBMs are better than Macs

JokeTribe - THE Best College Humor Archive of Funny Jokes

  1. I like the choice of memory - conventional, UMB, HMA, EMS, XMS, DPMI,
    VCPI. Macintosh 32-bit flat addressing does not appeal to me.

  2. I like the choice of video adapter "standards": MDA, CGA, Hercules,
    Hercules Colour, EGA, VGA, SVGA, XGA, 8514, AT&T, PGA. In any case, I
    enjoy restarting Windows every time I want to change video modes.

  3. Everyone knows IBM buses are better than the Macintosh - ISA 16 bit at
    8MHz is fast enough for me. Or I could use EISA, MCA, VLB, or even PCI.
    Those poor Macintosh users only get a 20MHz NuBus slot or a 32-bit local
    bus slot (which they had to put up with before us IBM users did anyway).

  4. My IBM PC is more expandable than a Macintosh - I've got two serial
    ports, a parallel port, a joystick port (all on the one card!), a sound
    card (SoundBlaster, AdLib, MediaVision, Gravis - all different standards,
    of course), a mouse plugged into my serial port, a video adapter, a
    network card, a disk drive controller, and a SCSI interface. Of course,
    that all takes up six of my eight slots just to get my PC up to the same
    standard as a Macintosh with nothing plugged into its expansion slots,
    but that doesn't really count.

  5. My PC running 16-bit text mode DOS applications is much faster than a
    Macintosh running 32-bit GUI applications. Although, when I run Windows I
    have to be satisfied with a computer just slightly faster than molasses
    in the freezer.

About JokeTribe

These all are jokes that we've had the good fortune of having other people email to us or we've retrieved off the Internet. Over time, we've sent them on to the subscribers of our various jokes lists. Since we're talking some ten years of managing these emails lists, we've built up a pretty sizeable (and FUNNY) collection of jokes. They cover pretty much any category and topic that you can imagine; from clean jokes to dirty jokes and most everything in between, including the much loved lawyer jokes and the blonde jokes and the yo mama jokes as well as those redneck jokes. Remember, we did NOT author them, but we did take the time to convert the text files to html.

If you are certain of the authorship of any of these, email us the author's name along with relevant information on how we can verify that they truly are the author so we can give them the credit that they deserve.
