    Re: Windows or OS X?

    Windows on my main PC, and laptop.

    Linux on my two F@H dedicated folders.

    F@H is a distributed computing program from Stanford University.

    Yeah, running xubuntu on both my linux boxes. Switched over from Kubuntu Edgy Eft because these machines have SATA HDD's.

    Isn't comparing actual computers an apple to oranges comparison though? Since Microsoft doesn't produce PC's, they have no control over what type of machine it goes on to. Obviously a year old Mac with Os X will be a better computer than a four year old PC that runs Windows. Yes, OS X does some things better than Vista, and yes Vista will be able to do some things better than Os X. But in the end, they both basically do the same thing.

    What's great about Apple machines is that you know you're most likely getting a product that will be reliable, productive, and fun to use. But, you do have to pay a little more for hardware that can be bought cheaper. My PC can do mostly everything a Mac can and I paid about $400 for it by building it (not including monitor).

    That's why I'm an applications guy, not an operating system guy.

    I just started goofing around with it a couple of weeks ago. It's really easy to set up and run. The networking tools on it (or easily installed on it) are just way better than the stuff generally available for xp.

    My five year old G4 runs better than my brand new Windows machines at work. I will agree with you on one thing, though: the only good, cheap PC I've ever owned was one I built myself.
