I don't really think that all this comparisons will change a thing. Personally, I like what has everything I need and just gives me a smooth and nice feel. To me that's windows. I find Windows elegant but when I hear people saying Windows UI is boring, I get shocked.

So, in the end, it is your own decision. Even if a million people said Windows ain't good and no one says OS X sucks, I still will stick to Windows cause it gives me that nice feeling. The same goes to those who like OS X.

Another good thing about both OS on a level playing field is that neither of them can slacken. They both have to start working equally hard and we consumers obviously benefit from that. That means neither can slacken or afford to lose out.

One thing I like about Microsoft is it's never give up attitude. It has failed in it's Operating System, Security Products, Web Browsers and Web Search in the past. But it never gave up. And now it has made a legendary comeback. It's web browser even though not excellent yet, finally met with standards. Bing, MSE and Windows 7 have all got excellent reviews and finally, Microsoft has shown us why it is regarded as one of the best in the software industries.

WTF would you care about OS X, it is stale, supports little to nothing in terms of standard software, has NO GAMING capabilities, and it is just gay. Get off your apple bandwagon. Better OS...HARDLY, it is just as vulnerable as MS. The only difference is the user. Apple is crippled and won't allow stupid people do stupid things...but they are still there in Apple, just hidden!!!!!!!!! I work on both, trust me, W7 is more usable...unless all you do is surf on safari, draw pictures, and play with Garage Band. Seriously, how is that so awesome...on windows you can do whatever you can think of.

On Linux you can do whatever you want? whats your point exactly? Everyone has their needs and OS X apparently meets the needs of quite a few people.

I'm not sure what it is people always claims is locked away from users. OS X is UNIX certified and you can dive in however much you want to. In fact, OS X include all the powerful *NIX commands, and you can do pretty amazing things by just tying together some scripts. Most people don't care about games. At least not enough to influence OS choice. People have jobs and families and responsibilities that take up precious time, and are willing to pay a company to not be a giant screwup like most PC OEMs so they can spend less of their time fiddling with an appliance (because that's all a computer is).

I personally know several researchers and scientists from top universities who use the Mac platform exclusively for their research purposes. My university's CS department is pretty huge on OS X. And none of my software is exclusive to the windows platform. The amazing thing about Apple is how they can take an immensely powerful platform and keep it out of your way until you need it.

I know we're going OT here, but I tried the iDeneb thing (and another which I've forhotten) to get OSX dual-booting on my PC. It just messed up my system completely by corrupting boot sectors etc. so I had to completely remove the drive it was on and re-install Windows to get my system back.
Also, can you get graphic drivers that give all resolutions? (I'm on 1900x1200)
I appreciate that some people get this working OK. Is there a fool-proof guide to getting this to work somewhere?

If you want help with things related to hackintosh's PM me then please, also you should check Insanelymac's HCL to see if your hardware is compatible with OS X or not.

Nice read. But I have to say... OS X Has always failed in Comparison to Windows 7. Heck, Even Vista.

I've used OSx86 on this Machine and gotten it running fine. It's a Amazingly simple OS in the surface, But underneath, There's no Substance.

Even though you hear people say Macs are better for IMage and Video editing, I have to say, Photoshop is better on Windows. Heck, CS4 is not even available in 64-bit on Mac.
And Movie Maker 6 pwns iMovie. (If you want me to help you get WMM6 on 7, PM me)

Windows 7 and Snow leopard are both just Improving on the Prior release, But Microsoft has done way more Improving than Apple. (and Vista was already Better than Leopard IMO)

I say all that even though I like OS X, I wish Apple would make it useful, But Windows just pwns it so much...

What do you mean there's no substance? I can't think of anything that one can do that the other can't. Windows enjoys better app support, Macs enjoy a cleaner UI, UNIX core, great bundled software and the benefits of having a single company optimize the OS and hardware. Choose whatever is the most important to you.

I just really don't see how anybody claims OS X is some stripped down OS. Apple has been working on the Mac longer than MS has.

For anybody curious, Ars Technica did a good article on how the Windows vs Mac paradigm of apps vs windows has shaped their UI differences, and how Windows has traditionally been stuck with a mess of different model of document management: Paradigms lost: The Windows 7 Taskbar versus the OS X Dock - Ars Technica

Though, with Snow Leopard's dock expose, the dock fixes some of the problems Ars raises with it (namely, the inability to handle 30-40 documents very well in pre-snow leopard expose).

Honestly the only reason I install OS X/Linux is to have something different to tinker with, Linux and OS X are not something I'd use as my Main OS ever.
