    I use, uh, Vista x64 ultimate....no haters, because you wouldn't know what you're talking about, I've used it for over 6 months.

    I'll go for 2nd option?

    I wish I had the money to go get a MAC, I watched the guided tour video at the apple site and I recommend other to do so as well. I was blown away in amazement at some of the new features of MAC OSX Leopard especially the "Time Machine" feature. After watching the video I really wanted to get a MAC

    I would've considered a Mac for a *nix workstation, had it not been for the fact that you can't expand on/upgrade the original hardware at all unless you go with the ridiculously overpriced Mac Pro. And for the record, I could never use a laptop for a main machine. A laptop inherits many of the properties that make electronic appliances bad - you can't service it yourself, it's not expandable etc.

    The Time Machine stuff, or something very similar, will soon be in FreeBSD. ZFS support has been merged into 7-CURRENT.

    me [​IMG] ZFS, too bad it isn't gonna be coming to linux [​IMG]
    rsync + bash script achieves a lot of the same stuff time machine does, time machine is nicely integrated though.

    Lotsa cool new features and some features that you wonder why we didn't have in the first place *hint*spaces*hint*.

    Not that I have a Mac. Don't have the money for one but when I do get the chance, I'm bagging me a mini. That thing is dead sexy.

    Linux is just fine for me, thank you. [​IMG]
    I did try OSx86 though, but my AMD CPU has issues with most of the new disks and my GeForce 8800GTS has issues with the old disks. So yeah. [​IMG]

    when i go out and buy a new system...
    1 - i would look for the best design, cute and sexy!
    2 - i will go for the highest prices tag! coz its will mean quality is within
    3 - i will get a designer's preferred machine, so i can be fashionable/hip

    all the above....

    what a load of crap!!
    its for simple people!
    too simple!

    when theres a problem, you'll have to get it fix at their retail outlet
    coz they think you're a dumb c**t
    really, they dont want you to change/mod any of their/your hardware... coz you are just too dumb/simple

    wheres the freedom of power/alternative changes?

    can i stuffed/hack my pc up and then fixed it up?

    i guess the mac ppl cant... coz they are too simple!

    wheres the power of freedom??

    I've been running 10.5 since launch. I love it. So much faster than 10.3.

    Apple's got some Magical Unicorns that they unleash for each release.

    I've been using Leopard for the past couple days now (upgraded 1st gen Macbook) It's quite nice, some things to get used to but so far it's been pretty stable and fancy looking. It's not really that big of a change Aesthetically from Tiger but it 'feels' just as nice. My favourite things so far:

    Quicklook!
    Better network sharing facilities + VNC
    New iChat + features
    Much more vibrant looking and stable.

    Still yet to try out Time Machine though, making a plan for it on my 500GB External soon [​IMG]

    Windows, because most games and stuff are made for it.
    I got windows blinds and rocket dock so it looks like a mac:)
    Does x86 mean 32 bit?

    I don't have it yet but I'll have it soon!
    Simply because there's an Apple distributor around the corner who didn't get it yet and I refuse to get it from the idiotic Apple stores here in the city because they're assholes.

    Can't wait to wipe my harddrive and get installing! [​IMG]

    I tried the Leox86 release, but this compy has an ATI x200pieceofshitM chipset, which is a pain in the ass to setup, and will most likely never support QE/CI.

    So Zenwalk/XP for me.
