Eh? Linux isn't made by a Sony rival. It's made by a chit-ton of individuals, some corporate backed, some not and it's sold and supported by several different companies. Sony used Linux on their 10,000 PS2 dev machines. Wish I could have gotten one. Instead all i got was the PS2/Linux kit from Sony. KB, Mouse, 40GB hardrive and a precompiled version of linux for about $200 :icon_bigg

I'm assuming they are still using Linux for PS3, but I dunno. I'm not keeping up with 'em.

yeah, i noticed it's similar. i guess my main problem with the OS is that i'm not familiar with it, but like i said i'm not into computers so i don't have much input on this topic...but no one else was saying much in depth either.

You don't have to use a single click mouse with a MAC. I *HATES* that too. I use my regular ol logitech 3 button, scrolly mouse with mine just fine. In fact the newer macs have a funky mouse that recognizes right and left clicks even though it doesn't have the buttons on it. I just don't like how the whole mouse feels like it's node diving when you click it.

As far as looks.. personal preferences.


I love the command line for some stuff. You can sorta use the CLI in windows, but DOS sucks. The reason I felt OK with switching to MAC is because ever since OSX, it's built on top of BSD Unix. Linux is a unix-ish type OS. So I can still have my command line stuff with some subtle differences, and get a nice (not that my Linux Desktops weren't nice) desktop with good hardware support.


I tend to bash microsoft quite a bit, but there are several reason for it. Some valid, some not so much. Like I mentioned earlier, I've been using Linux since '94. I went to the midnight sale on the eve on the Windows '95 launch and bought it. (little known fact about me )

I've had to use Windows 2000 and Windows XP for work and they were decent for the work. I felt handicapped by the lack of CLI and installed cygwin tools out of desperation, but ended up dual booting on the company laptop :icon_bigg Sucked because corporate mail required Exchange (here's were the microsoft bashing comes back into play)

Nobody is reading this anyway, so I'll just talk about space shuttles and ducks. Who likes the duckies in the pond? I do I do!


Long story short, whatever fits your needs. Do you have any applications you absolutely need and can't live without? If so, is it available for MAC? If not, then you're stuck on Windows. If not, then give a mac a try. :icon_bigg

no viruses, the mouse can actually be set up to be a 4 button mouse, not just a single click. Can dual boot OSX and indows if needed, so you can have both OS's on a single computer. No random crashes. Looks cooler. You can customize most of yor apps, appearance..

working on a motoped







I used windows for about 10 years and with my last laptop learned to hate PCs. I now use a macbook. I like it. It does take some getting used to. As far as the one button vs. two issue, there are a number of ways to get the "right click" options, it's all in the settings. I did buy office for mac but not windows. I still have my other laptop becasue there are a few features I have not figured out just yet.
