    because most people aren't willing to buy a completely new machine just to use a different OS.

    hell, most people want to stick with what they know.... and most people know windows.

    on that same token, if Linux is SO stable, and the gui is top notch, why isn't it more widely distributed?

    If everyone includes non-macs, then the explanation has to do with the lack of IRQs and the general differences between x86 and mac hardware.

    linux does NOT have a gui.


    ps. I like the flame bait :)

    sorry sirz. I was referring to x-windows.

    A long standing bandwagon, hating windows OS because its so prevalent.

    "I AM SO ALTERNATIVE, I RUN A QUAD-BOOT OF OS 9 then X plus Linux."

    :rolleyes:

    and why are hardcore mac/linux users always balding, then try to make up for it and grow their hair out long in the back? :dunno:

    Name something on OS X that I can't do in a windows OS.

    Better yet, name something you do in Windows that can't be done better in OS X.

    This is the stupidest thread bad mouthing the Mac yet. Everyone isn't using it because businesses are established Windows users and it would cost them millions to "switch" to Apple hardware/software. Not to mention the majority of corporations don't like they idea of dealing in hardware that is solely controlled by one company.

    It's debatable whether OS X is better than Windows or x86 hardware is better than Mac hardware. All I know is that things just seem to work more seamlessly and consistently on the Mac platform... of course when you have one manufacturer building everything, seamless software and hardware integration should happen.

    If Apple made it more possible, to run their OS on a pc, then windows would have a little more to worry about. But as someone said, who wants to have too buy a whole new system, just to use an OS. That's what's really holding them back.

    Though there has been talks, that Apple will be making the move to pc (they've been talking to AMD as well), I still feel it's more of a rumor then anything. Though it would be cool to see.

    For now, I plan on sticking with Windows XP Pro. I have no plans on moving to Windows Longhorn in 2005/2006. Microsoft is planing on leasing that OS... ie ... You will not own it, like how you own your corrent OS, you'll have to "rent" it & many of the free services in Windows XP / Windows 2003, will also be leased, such as MSN Messneger, ect...

    I know Linux (or at least I'm still learning). As it grows more, I'll take more thought into it, but currently, it can't support the programs I use & though linux has programs & games, I'm not up for replacing them.

    i love my mac, shit just works. its got a more visually pleasing interface if you ask me, although its all opinion. the mac machines are overpriced though, but hey i didnt pay for mine :)

    i use mine mainly for digital media...final cut pro, dvd studio pro, photoshop - those sort of things.

    the world of gaming is still deff. in the pc realm. but i bought a mac to do graphic design, not play games - thats why i got a ps2

    unix (specifically the bsd's, ive not used others) is much better written and, hence, more stable than every operating system you have mentionned.

    If OS X runs on a intel based platform (PC), no one will ever want to buy a mac. :rofl:
