Hi, I've always been a Windows user and even support them as my job. Pretty boring stuff but I get a paycheck out of it. A decent Windows 2000 pc rarely crashes but it's the patches and security issues that annoy me. I've always said that when I can afford and can justify buying a laptop it will be a Mac as the difference in price between a Mac and a good PC is very little and I'm sure the Mac would be better quality. However, I've been getting myself quite familiar with Linux recently and have wondered how people would compare OS X with a good distro of linux like Mandrake, SUSE, Slackware etc. (Mac's are build on Free BSD right?) I'm sure Linux is slightly more complicated to use but I figured I'm going to have to learn a new OS either way so I don't mind spending a little more time. In short, what would make you tilt towards Mac's over Linux?
