You can start hissing now… part of my role as Editorial Director is to look after another magazine, PC Advisor. Yes, that’s PC as in Windows. Now, come on… we’re all friends these days. Apple’s switched to Intel. You can boot Windows XP on a MacBook or iMac. And the world of Windows is actually jolly good fun. Here’s a genuine reader’s letter to PC Advisor. I think it speaks for itself:

“My computer runs XP Home Edition, and has one hard disk drive, which was C:. It also has a DVD driveD: and a CD drive E:. The hard disk failed and was repaired under warranty. When it was returned I installed it into my computer and XP assigned it the letter F:. I have tried to rename it to C: because some files refer to it as that, but it now appears to have both F: and C; assigned to it. In the Disk Management tool the letter displayed is F:, but XP will not allow me to change it to C: as it says that it is a system drive. How can I restore it to drive C:?”

Blimey! And you thought you had problems…
