Greatest crime of our generation?

How I PC'd an Apple G5

My vote goes to the guy who built this web page. Reminiscent of monkey excrement art, this guy ripped the beating heart out of a G5 (a dually, to boot), and popped in a generic Athlon.

That's the moral equivalent of getting a new Porsche, and swapping out the motor for one from an AMC Pacer.

Check out the after photo, to see why we should leave computer design to the professionals.

This is a crime of Bush v. Gore proportions. Update 1/31: The original perpetrator now claims that he did it as a joke on a Mac-using friend, when he acquired a bare G5 case. He received 1300 e-mails within a day or so of the article appearing.

I'd love to see the look on his parents face when confronted with how he devalued their gift......
