I would first like to say that I am a Mac person. That being said, I do not choose not to use Windows simply because I use Macs, more because I do not trust the security and reliability of Windows. My question is simple. As a Mac person, would it be immoral to build and use an X86 based machine running some version of Linux? My reasons behind this move are to further my own knowledge systems and also because I genuinely need an X86 machine for the few things I can't do on my Mac. Having said I will not use Windows, I still might install WINE to allow the use of a few Windows only applications. What is the determination of the Forum?
