I've had my Macbook for a year and I like it well enough.

I haven't used Windows in about 7 years, even though I have a bunch of Microsoft certifications. I used Linux before I bought my Apple laptop. I still use Linux on all my other machines, but I've been enjoying using Mac OS for the last year.

Short answer:

Linux >= Apple >>>> PC

I guess I never realized how many people use Macs. I think Microsoft tries to convince the world that nobody uses anything but Windows.

You can run Linux on almost anything, it can even be installed on a dead badger (old school nerd humor).

I meant Linux >= Mac > PC because those were the poll options. It wasn't a Mac vs. Windows poll

Are there any Linux users here?

I used Linux as my primary desktop since 1994. Bought a Mac in Nov '05, but only connected to it via VNC. After about 2 weeks, I realized I was spending more and more time on the MAC session, so I switched it to my primary desktop.

Windows can suck my . :icon_bigg

how about some explains Why mac or PC is better? it's hard for me to say much about them because i don't know much, but i don't like mac's single click mouses and i don't really care for their OS' overall layout. other than that i don't see a huge difference.
