    Can anyone actually give me a sound reason why a non-artist who doesn't have any special feelings towards Apple or Mac OSes would chose Mac over Linux?

    Unfamiliarity with the OS and its components?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Damn, sound reasoning. So far I've used Windows 95/98/ME/2003/XP/Vista, Mac OSX, and Linus: Fedora 2, Slax, and Ubuntu (I think).

    OSX and Vista bugged me the most. Fedora 2, outdated I know, was like a dream. A very nice dream. With cake. And ice cream. And hookers.

    After going through all the years of patches and service packs to get XP to the point it's at now it seems crazy to dump that, jump to Vista, and then have to start all the patching and service pack crap over again from the beginning.

    It's already almost impossible to buy an XP-laptop here, from stores like Best Buy. Even Dell is slowly phasing out XP support from their online vendors.

    Like anyone here doesn't know where to find a cracked version of xp.

    I am not endorsing or condoning such. But I am saying it is out there. You just have to find it.

    Doesn't exist outside of fanboyism and inexperience.

    touche. but i'll wait till Vista SP2 before installing it on a laptop, or buying one that comes with it. i've test-drived Vista already, and honestly, i'm perfectly happy sticking with XP.

    you're ignoring the fact that people generally like upgrades - vista is a way to milk money off new people *and* people who want to upgrade from XP

    as for the mac, it's all style and no substance. so, for artsy types. no offense to artists.
