    Hey Everyone,
    I purchased my unibody Macbook in March 2009. I loved it at first, but then I was having wireless issues, and I wasn't loving iWork or Office for the mac. I couldn't stand Mac:Messenger and I didn't like Adium either. I felt that I could do things a lot faster on Windows. So, in December 2009 I installed Windows 7 Professional and have used that as my sole operating system on my mac every since. Now, Mac lovers that I know think I am insane for doing such a thing, like I am an abomination to the mac world. In all honesty, I love Windows 7 and am not all that caught up with OS X after I owned it myself after a few months. I was just wondering if I was the only one out there that tried a Mac and stayed with Windows?
    Just thought I'd start a discussion.
    No hard feelings intended, a choice is a choice and I respect people who want to use a mac just as much as any one who uses Windows. Just wondering if I'm the only one out there like this?

    Are you the only one using Windows 7 on Mac hardware? Is that a serious question?

    Yeah, you're the only one... you must not have drank enough of the Kool-Aid... :)



    In all seriousness, I have to agree with you about iWork and Office:Mac - they just don't compare to Office 2k7 in Windows. If I were going to be doing heavy Office work all day long, I'd probably be using Windows more, too. But I just love everything else about my Mac, so I deal with the stupidity of Office 2008....

    Hey, if Windows 7 works for you, go with it. For me, keep it away. Far, far away.
