dont take this too seriousely! there are many dif. opinions posted....but thats the point....OPINIONS! some of you have posted facts, and it seems the only real facts were posted about macs. for one, osx os not a dinasour os.....it is in FACT what M$ based windows xp off of....oh yah, i forgot, so wasnt the orig. windows based on mac os......the truth is, apple ios far beyond windows in inovation, science, design, reliability, and almost everything else! did you also know, FACT M$ office was orig. designed for the mac? then was avail. for pc's. FACT the mac runs on UNIX not linux, close, but UNIX is a more stable op. system, and easier to write programs for, and a lot harder to write a virus for.....in FACT most unix/osx virus's are only able to be done from the keyboared written in unix itself.
as for the die hard pc lovers getting mad at this posting.....WTF? truth huts i guess, why wouuld you get mad, esp. when all you said, (and you know who i am talking to) is only OPINION! you gave no FACTS to back up your opinion. i geuss its like "package envy" for computers....you always have to have the best, and because you spent your life savings on a pc that barely compares to a dual g5, you feel hurt by this? i am not sure, i am not your shrink, but if you want to argue about the two machines, the delelopers, and what their interests are, i am your contender, because i have facts, i used and programed apps on both, and i can tell you, and back it up, FACT, the mac. is a supierior machine! (oh, and cheaper too.....i can back that up too!) the best comp. is.......BMW, OR MERCEDES? most pc's are hyundais....some are hondas......and the fully loaded ones are mercedes! all mac's are bmw's.......i say this, because you cant get a bmw for cheap money, but you can get the best bmw for a lot cheaper than the 2nd best mercedes.....do you need links to check this too??....lol
that is the TRUTH, and because some people only have $850.00 to spend on a cpu.....they buy pc's.....and then listen to idiots, and think they have the best! but a dual xzeon at 3.5ghz, doesnt even compare to a dual 2ghz g5! FACT! oh, i forgot, another fact.....xzeon is the fastest pc proscessor!
and to get the dual xzeon, you will pay about $1000.00 more than the dual g5 FACT!
