    I have a Dell Dimension that came with Windows XP.Is there any way to install Mac software(even if it means reformatting hard drive)?Also, after reading several biased articles on Mac vs Windows, Where can I get the real unbiased scoop?These may be silly questions but I am thinking of going to Mac and am not that savvy with tech of computers
    Thank You

    It does not fall under the user license agreement, in another word it is not allowed, frowned upon. I will stop short of saying it's illegal.

    It can be done. It's a lot more involved process then installing OS X on a Mac or XP on a PC. You also lose a lot of the benefits that make OS X so damn cool. in other words running OS X on a PC does not do the OS justice.

    As far as unbiased opinions about Mac's you'll be hard pressed to find them. Mac users love their OS X and will usually defend it to the death. The windows users who have never used a Mac will usually call Macs crap and won't give it the time of day. Your best bet at seeing how nice Macs are is to look at the users themselves. How many windows users do you read about that switch from Windows to Mac? How many switch from Mac to Windows? That should be a good indicator as to which machines are better :)
