Default Mac vs PC... and Linux :D

I think the whole Mac vs PC thing is completely stupid.

First of all, PC means Personal Computer, It has nothing to do with the operating system.
Secondly, by saying that you are a PC means that you are a dumb machine that relies on human written instructions in order to do anything, aka a TOOL.

So, yeah... I think those commercial dudes should fix their terminology. A Mac is an operating system running on a PC, with a company name attached.

What do you think?

I think the new Windows OS is great (Windows 7). But I still favor Linux more than anything. As for Mac... I'm not the biggest fan... never really liked em. Although Mac is basically Linux... just screwed up.

most linux gui versions are awful for daily use imo,
espesially ubuntu and mint, they both run so slow. ive waited up to a minute for firefox to open in ubuntu

macs are good for design, anything that involves some kind of art, like photoshop, illustrator, design, etc
windows = good for pretty much everything daily use related, has the most functionality (also known as a pc.), its shit for servers
linux = good for servers, bad for daily use as a home computer

chrome os and w7 look promising, im going for w7 when its released though

An OS is all about personal preference.

For me, I use all 3.

Mac, Linux, and Windows.

The only reason I will not buy a Mac is because you are paying for over priced parts that suck ass. Its all about the name.

Other then that, the OS isn't horrible, but it could use some improvement.

What are you talking about? RAM is probably the cheapest part of a PC you can buy other then heatsinks/CPU coolers.
