Sorry but I couldn't resist. Guess that means I have to say something about gaming hardware. http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I love my Voodoo5 with UT. Too bad about 3dfx. they had a good thing going. haven't been playing as much lately. I'm on my third trip through the tournament and Xan is kicking my ass! http://www.macgurus.com/ubb/eek.gif

I found this excellent article (http://www.techtite.com/WWWrong/Wwwrong6.html) explaining what went wrong to put 3DFX out of business and in the basement of their primary competitor...

Hmmm... I guess if I were using a Mac for my Mame Cabinet, this would be an ideal forum to discuss it! http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hey M

Please read your email. I think 3dfx and VooDoo cards kicked butt too.

No doubt! I loved my Voodoo3 card. I imagine if 3DFX had started out supporting Macs they may have had enough market to stay in the running. Everyone always assumes that 10% market isn't worth the bother. I'm sure Ford would love an extra 10% of the car market!
