On the other hand... you kinda should've thought of that when you bought your Computer... Chosing a Mac might give you a few advantages, yea, but you have to live with the fact that 86,42% of the softwares don't work (or don't work properly) on a Mac. Windows (since they abandoned the "home" segment and started using the coporational engine for everything, it's getting a lot better) might suck, but, hell, it is compatible with everything.
Bah. Since they made Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 for mac, I don't NEED a windows.
And they'll probably make a version of MSN that doesn't suck sometime.
For computer choice of a mac, I think the benefits outweigh the bad points. I've heard a lot of horror stories about windows, such as a hard drive getting completely ruined for no reason. The worst thing that ever happened to a mac was that it couldn't find the hard drive, and that was on Mac OS 9.
I'll stick with my incompatible, expensive mac.
Well...that really depends on the user, actually. I've never had problems with my Windows cause i know fairly well how to handle it. But if you pick a person that isn't too much into computers and stuff...that only uses the PC to enter some blogs and play CS (argh... ), then this fella may do all sort of stupid things that may end screwing up the whole OS...
But i guess it's about personal taste afterall... there're some people that use only Linux... i couldn't live without my Photoshop, though...
