I can thnk of a ton *ux apps or Windows apps I can't live without. Nary a one for OSX.
None of which require a strange proprietary bend on hardware. And all of which allow me flexibilty of not hacking to get stuff done quickly (multi-boots, etc.)
I just don't get it.
If you can find me a version of Logic Pro and Final Cut Studio that will run on PCs, then more power to you. But Windows is garbage and quite frankly, find me a computer with 4 processors for less then 3000.
Edit: I built my own on Newegg. It cost 3300 w/ water cooling and software.
