This is the main difference I have noticed between Mac users, and Linux users. Mac users generally are able to depend on their OS for everything. Yes, I do realize my Macs have Windows installed on them, but they are only there for games. My MacBook doesn't have any version of Windows installed on it whatsoever, however. All work, and other activities are done inside of OS X, and it is a great work/business/school/internet/*insert whatever here* OS. And the reason I do not have to install Windows on my Macbook is frankly, because I do not need it. Having an older generation MacBook means that I can't play games on it anyway, I have an iMac for that. Now, Linux users, they always rub into my face their $250 netbooks, and how they can run Linux, and it is more stable than Mac blah blah blah. Now here is the main difference. Every Linux user I have encountered, has Windows installed on their machines. They do not ever seem to use Ubuntu or anything of that sort as their main OS. They instead seems to always have Windows started up and say "Oh, but I have Ubuntu installed" or "Oh I have *insert other linux distro here* installed." They always claim they need Windows somehow, and it isn't even for games, it is for some work related thing. So why is it that Linux is so highly regarded as a consumer Operating System, when it seems that people can't ever seem to depend on it for work? Why do they need to boot back to Windows? Why do I never need to boot to Windows unless I do want to play a game, but Linux users seem to have to depend on Windows. Servers and proprietary equipment aside, and No offense to anybody, but to me, Linux on a consumer computer is just an OS for .... Internet access. What most of these users are implying is that I can't depend on Linux for any real work, just as a platform to run a web browser. I am not here to start a fight, flame war, or anything. I just want an explanation, and some information, of why Linux users have to still depend on Windows ,but us Mac users can be fine and dandy with Windows nowhere in sight unless one wants to play a PC game or two?
