I was wondering what is the OS of preference amongst TLN members.

I can ask my mac to tell me a knock knock joke, and it will. What can your PCs do?

PS- Kam I remember you had a vid posted on facebook with you doing that, it was hilarious.

I have extensively used with at least 4 years experience mac OS, windows OS, and various linux distros (red hat, fedora, and ubuntu mostly), and currently using windows 7 RC1 pretty exclusively now. I do pretty much anything you can with a computer (internet, media center, programming, graphic design, web design, gaming, etc.) If you know what you're doing, I don't see any reason to run into any problems with windows.

PC over MACtardz.
I had used PC my whole life. 3 years ago a Mac G1 was on sale at B/B. I bought it because I heard by word of mouth it was much better suited for my industry. LOL! What a crock. That thing had so many issues. It was like they didnt even QC test the thing before they shipped it. It continued to freeze habitually. And it wouldnt make me sit there and waste time watching the froze screen as the ads promise, because it would just shut down and I'd lose work. MAC is all hype and I think it sucks. Then the store wouldnt take it back....lol.
I called customer support to excersize my 1 year warranty...they wanted me to send it in and said it will take 2 weeks to diagnose and fix. So WTF am I supposed to do just stop progress on my work while you MACtardz figure out why the $1500 I spent is on a piece of sheeeet. Then B/B finnaly let me exchange it for a Sony VAIO. I've had it ever since and it works great.

you should add a poll to this.

Mac in my opinion is all about hype and people without personality wanting to have what everybody is having, I think it is more of a fashion statement than what it really performs.

It is true, PC's are cheaper and they can have greater features.

I currently bought a VAIO about 2 months ago, it is a beautiful computer on the outside, it is the FW series, it's got FULL HD 1080p resolution, Blu Ray burner, 500GB's HDD, 4GBs RAM, Core Duo 2 2.46. I have a jetplane, and it cost less than 1,300 including taxes.

For me it's not even close, I get to watch Blu-Rays in my HD TV through HDMI, I have an incredible fast machine for software and for multitasking, I also use a wireless N network at home and my computer supports that, it is just a dream, I probably won't trade this laptop for at least 2 years. And if I do it has great resale just for the Blu-Ray burner and the HD display.

What can you get on a Mac store for $1,500 let alone $1,300.

It's not even debatable. And I do like the iPods, so I'm not an anti Apple guy, I just hate their prices and their laptops. However there still are some people in fact maybe most of them in my age group willing to spend 2 grand on an inferior computer to keep the Apple stock high, and give more money to Steve Jobs, so in a way Steve Jobs is a genius to brainwash all those people for their money. However, how do you think Apple can afford all them stores and all them marketing? That's right -- you overpaying for the computers than you can find on a PC for much less with much more to offer.
