    I have been able to explore Mac OS X more easily than any other OS. It is very user friendly. Which is in stark contrast to my experiences with Windows.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    A Windows man, myself, if only because I haven't tried anything else.
    I almost got fed up enough to try an alternative OS back after I had Windows ME for a few years. A little while back I switched over to a machine running XP, and I've been happy with it. It's caused me very little difficulty or frustration, and in over a solid year of use I can honestly not remember ever getting a blue-screen-of-death on it.
    Then again, coming off of ME, I'd probably be happy with any decent OS.

    I love my Mac. Love it love it love it. Of course, thats probably because I am really into video editing, and the best video editor on the planet (Final Cut Pro) is for the Mac


    We use these dells at school, and it seems like every other day the server is down or some other problem exists. Keep in mind every computer in the school is brand new running XP Pro, and the servers are all Dell servers running Windows Server 2003. But its always something like the printers won't work, the login system is down, the file server is down, the net connection is down, the router is down...always an excuse.

    However, since I have a teacher account (I need it for ASB, as I'm the supervisor of the tech team, and use the account to update the school website), so I have access to the servers which arn't down as much (teacher and student systems are different servers, probably to protect the grades from being changed by a student who knows a little too much).

    Though I'm figuring if you boot into Knoppix on the school computer, you can probably access all that anyway. Stupid Windows.

    I'm a windows guy. However, I've had thoughts of cheating and trying out Mac OS.

    Use Windows today. Prefered the old Mac OS, before it became Unix with a shell running.

    No, it wasn't the sturdiest ("The application 'Unknown' has quit because a Type 1 error occured") but it was the one I was most knowledgable of.

    Go for it, as there has never been a better time.

    You can try the new Mac mini for $500 and use your existing Display, keyboard and mouse.

    Believe me you will wonder how you ever managed before.

    I prefer Mac OSX, but use windows on my laptop.
    Currently have OSX on the Mac G4 desktop, Windows XP on the Office Desktop and Laptop, and Linux Mandrake 8.2 on a partition of the laptop (cant get 10 to install) I am going to build another linux box and probably put Free BSD on there to learn.
    Here I am

    I agree, but for me, i listed my main OS, that I use most often for day to day browsing, productivity, email, etc....

    There is no doubt that linux is great for setting up servers, etc..

    Linux is for all people.. Buisnesses, Schools, and homes use it.. It can be saver than windows and is cheaper.... ($15 for a CD of most versions)

    It can be used on most IBM based computers... and their is even a version for older mac machines...... (If you buy a computer, and dont have cash for win it is a good trade off...)
