With PC you get something for the hardcore people that wan't control and many many ways to get one things done. OSX = novice , XP = best OS , Vista = Worst OS . take your pic... No support for apps as well. Oh and don't install apple software on your PC ,, haha hoggy slow , nonsense ruins you unit and slows it down to crawl... thx,,,, just my opinion, don't have to agree. Go look @ Cakewalk screenshots then Logic screenshots and youll see my drift! For someone who is a producer , composer / Gamer ,,, , Server 2003 tech kicks ass.. No need for firewall, all ports all closed and in stealth. Plus no firewall works with it, The only thing is people can see your exisitince on the net.. Who cares LOL !!!
Lawlz, this guy's got mad skillz. I'm guessing this guy has never seen Final Cut Pro in his life. And BTW, OSX is not Linux based, but actually based on the BSD implementation of Unix.

2 finger tap click. All you do is tap with 2 fingers instead of one.
Oh, I guess that works too. I don't have tap-to-click enabled on mine; I don't like it.

What? A site? How does that make it a noob OS?

Shouldn't a site be designed to allow easy navigation? Would you call it more "pro" if they made it harder for you to find everything?

As for the OS itself, yes, it's easy to use. Like I said, it's oriented toward noobs, but it's not like you can't touch anything in it.

The fact that it's old doesn't mean it's not the best or good or whatnot. New != better. Change != better.

Afterall, hitler wanted change.

I'm not saying XP is better; I'm just saying that that logic doesn't exactly work.

I mean you can do absolutely anything you want with it. It is THE enthusiast's OS.

Agreed, but still, things like Compiz-Fusion - those are things that make today's OSs the most advanced we have ever seen. OSX is, by far, better than its predecessors. Vista is better than its predecessors. And Linux is better now than its own predecessors.

It's not the usability, it's the language and wording. And yes OSX does allow you to mess with it's innards, but there's oftentimes points where I'm asking "but why do I need to use terminal to do this?!"

That wasn't my logic. It's old according to Microsoft, and Microsoft is ending their sales of XP. That is why I said what I did. This is the last year to buy XP.

I'd disagree, there's a lot you can't do. Unfortunately WINE isn't caught up yet.

Because the Terminal is power itself... It is the All Spark.

It is the enthusiast's OS. Everything about it is customizable, tweakable, whatever you want to call it.

What would make any other OS an enthusiast's OS? Games? That would make it a gamer's OS. Benchmarking? Maybe, but that's kind of weak.

Basically, if the price of the service pack 10.5.3 is greater than $0 (if it's not free), then Macs can't have right-click. But Macs CAN right-click (as is printed when the program runs.) Therefore, Mac service packs must be free
