...or try to edit AVCHD Video on WIndows 7 PC. Really, I am not an Apple fan-boy. I am just really busy and need my technology to work NOW!

I don't have any trouble editing AVCHD/MPEG4/AVC on WinXP/Vista/Win7. Just buy a cheap copy of Nero Vision or TMPGEnc Xpress and you're all set. With all the money you save by not buying Apple surely you can spare a few bucks. Wait, you're a "techie" but can't be bothered to install a simple piece of software? I think you're placing your credentials at serious risk by saying things like that.

I came from a part of the world where kids willingly walk miles to school everyday and parents bankrupt themselves to pay the tuition. And I can tell you the curriculum is based almost entirely on rote memorization and constant testing. Why? So they can do well on entrance exams to elite high schools and colleges and then perhaps become part of the elite. While in school they had to put up with authoritarian discipline. If they don't like it well they're welcome to drop out and make way for others. Kids in America have it so good they don't care if they're pissing it all away.

Use the Force, Luke.
