just like most of you are BMW owners for life... i'm a mac user for life... i won't use any of the five windows pc's in my house for anything... including simple things like cheking movie times... i'll go up ot my room boot up my mac, and check it there (this is still usually fater than waiting for the virus, spyware and adware littered IE to even get to the movie times)

And actually I'm looking forward to vista. Screenshot 4 looks badass, and IE7 is supposted to rival firefox with tabbed browsing and higher security features. However the majority of this new look reminds me of KDE. Does anyone else see that?

Macs are only worth it if you dont game, its worth it to deal with spyware if your a gamer cause nothing is mac compatable until like a year after release.

Plus you cant build mac computer to your specific specs, and the things are outrageously expensive.

pc>mac

windows<all

Someones needs to step up in a major way and create a new OS for pc's, windows is absolute junk.. they have no competition, and until they do they wont do shit about their open registry.
