Hahaha! Move over Linux, OS X is rapidly becoming the preferred platform for hackers and "Alpha Geeks" of all ages. Check out the picture at CNN of the 15 year old kid hacking from his school's PowerMac (that must be some wealthy school district - PowerMacs and matching Apple displays - no eMacs here -sheesh!): http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/internet/12/17/student.hack/index.html And a few weeks ago I saw a feature on TV showing some other 15 year old kid sniffing Wi-Fi packets around Manhattan using his iBook and a Wi-Fi antenna enhanced with a Pringles can. Hilarious! From what I've read "Alpha Geeks" and hackers are moving to OS X in droves because it's what they've always dreamed of: a Unix computer with a great GUI that runs Office and connects easily to peripherals. Sure, Linux is more open, but really, what percentage of people really need to be recompiling their freakin' OS kernel? Most people, even geeks (I pretty much consider myself a prototypical member of the Geek class), are more interested in running and developing/compiling applications, and also using peripherals, not modifying and compiling the OS itself!!
