    Hi, I just wanted to make a quick suggestion that you change the name of the Section to Windows(or anything else) on a Mac so that you can include Linux, Unix, or any other kernel/OS.

    Thanks

    So you think that forum name should be this?

    Windows(or anything else) on a Mac

    Either way, the current title can cover other operating systems, but primarily Windows is the one talked about. Very rarely does Linux or any other OS outside of the mobile OS's get discussed on this site.

    Well I feel it should be more discussed. And yes that should be the title.

    Agreed. However, I wouldn't oppose making it Windows (or anything else) on a Mac. Heck, it may even help temper some OS X v Windows fanboy fights.

    Yeah, currently with the title, Running Windows on a Mac sounds like Windows is the only other OS that is widely used.

    It would need to be Windows(or anything else except for Apple made OSes) on a Mac :p

    Yup. :) We discussed a bit exactly what to rename it as, and finally more or less landed on the new title you see.

    Thanks for the idea!
