I avoid any Apple personal computer. The only Apple product I use is the iPod.

Windows 7 Ult x64(x2), HomePrem x32(x4), Server 08 (+VM), 08 R2 (VM) , SuSe 11.2 (VM), XP 32 (VM)
 
 

even the ipod is overpriced...
anyways i would just go the way of getting the almost/same parts as the mac buy the install disk and voila a working mac and quad boot it with 7, SuSe, and backtrack and at a better price then the mac machine...

If I wanted a Mac (a.k.a. a computer that only ran 12 out of 20,000 programs that Windows runs) I'd only use my TI-89 calculator.

hey i have one of those...
i knew how to code (or used to....) on that and be able to play that in school
while i admit that a mac has that certain polish to an os...
the workhorse is 7 (especially as VS 2008 and comming VS 2010 will be win only i can only see that happening...) as im beginning to code...
and it still looks pretty so yeah...
well at least you can code java in it (and pretty every other OS has that for that matter..)
and there is always wine or crossover mac...
and linux is the "experiment" so to say...
gotta love them bactrack tools...

VS 2008 is pretty spiffy. Haven't gotten to take much of a look at how 2010 is shaping up. But I expect good things.

Programming languages create quite the debate. So I'll leave that alone for now. LOL.
