Working computers are better than broken ones

Follow up to my last post on my dying computer:

So, I replaced the old 80 GB hard drive (that prompted my previous post) in my G4 PowerBook, with a shiny new 120 GB Samsung from NewEgg. This new installation seems to have even made it run better/faster than ever! It has somehow proven to be much simpler and painless than I ever imagined. If it were a windows machine, I can only imagine the pain and suffering that would have taken place. Horray Apple!  Commentary after the jump.
