What separates intelligent gamers from the rest?

N00b!

Today I came across one of those guides for transforming your Windows GUI into a Mac OS X GUI. I thought it was kind of interesting, so I decided to read it. I wasn’t surprised to find the oh-so-common stupid comments on the bottom of the blog.
