    Bought a PowerMac 7100/80 AV back in 1995, though I fell in love with Macs somewhere around '92-'93. System 7 was so much cooler than Windows 3.1. :wiggle:

    ...and before the windoze trolls say something about me needing to check out more recent versions of windows because it's so much better now...i have used windows machines in some capacity or another (work/home office) all along as well, i just prefer macs, especially since OS X. :bigthumb:

    counting my two laptops from work, i currently have two OS X machines and four XP Pro machines and am currently or have in the past been an admin on servers running the following OS's: WinNT, Win2K Advanced Server, Win 2003 Server, Red Hat Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS 9. (Though I've played around quite a bit with my OS X system, I haven't had a chance to play with a true OS X Server box yet).

    Had nothing but Windows PC's up until last year. Crashes, spyware, viruses, etc... led to a fit of anger, a format of my hard drive and an installation of Debian Linux. After a few months of messing with Linux on my PC machine, I decided to go with a Unix based Mac when time came to buy a laptop (12" iBook).

    I'm never looking back. Fuck windows, fuck MS and fuck PC's.
