    Question Are you a Mac or a PC?

    Neither...I use Linux Ubuntu (: But when I'm not on my laptop, unfortunately a PC.

    If this were Facebook, I'd 'like' that. I dual booted Linux Mint and Windows 7 for a while, until I ran out of space on each partition.

    I am not a Mac OR PC. I would classify myself as an 'all of the above' I don't hate any type of system- they all have their flaws.
    I like Windows 7 for its flexibility; I can run any type of program I want, it's backwards compatible with the past versions of Windows, I can run Apple programs on it, and it's gaming potential is incredible! I've currently got a Lenovo G530.
    The Mac OS is about the same size as windows- 8GB, but it has different user fuctionalities. I like it however, because of their photo programs, and their crystal clear screens and resolutions. However they still can't support gaming very well- their cooling fans and hard drives don't have the most reliable record out there.
    However, Linux wins the simple to run award- If I want to listen to music or just surf the web, and have fast response and simplicity, I will use it. It's flexibility to run other operating systems programs isn't the best- I tried for hours to get Photoshop CS 3 to run, and failed time after time. >_<

    So given that response, I will use whatever is handed to me, I just might modify it a little bit. I have a pc, I want a Macbook Pro, and whatever computer I'm using at the time, I'll put Linux on it as well. After all, once I get a bigger hard drive on my current laptop, I'll be dual booting Windows 7 and Mac OSX.

    I will say this though, when it comes to all-around use, I go with Windows.

    I started with Apple back in '84 with my first computer, an Apple 2C. I then moved to Mac in '87 but I had to make a switch to PC when it became necessary to have industry specific software and to network my office. That was back in 1997 and I never returned. On the other hand, my sons never left Mac.

    Personally I think MAC is not worth it at all. My boyfriends screwed up laptop had to be taken back in to many times and I think he's fed up with it. Good thing he can take it back and get his money back.

    I looove Linux because it's so fast and simple and never crashes on me or anything. Windows is good for gaming...and that's about it. :P Macs are good in terms of virus protection and little programs like it's (simple) video editing feature. That's the only thing I dislike about Ubuntu- the software center doesn't really provide many good video editing programs. Hey, I'm not a huge editor, but I'd like to be able to if I wanted. Is this a problem for you?
