Linux maybe complicated (if you don't know linux), but once you get the hang of it, you can't beat the stability and small foot print it has. Linux has come a long way, from no GUI to being able to have linux with or without GUI. But, back on topic, Apple has got to be kidding thinking they can bully MS to quit, especially after running those MAC vs PC commercials (and still running them) for so long.

Err about Apple MP3 players... They are overpriced pieces of ****... I own a Sansa E200 series and that thing tops an iPod Nano of the same capacity in every way (at the time of purchase anyway, it still does in most ways). I can play radio, music, view photos, record radio, record voice, and the thing is tougher than snot. It has literally survived falls from moving vehicles to see the light of a new day with little to no damage.

Sure, new iPods have the fancy accelerometer built in, but for $90 USD, they can't beat an 8 GB Sansa. Not in durability, or in features. Hell, I never even heard of a Nano going for less than $145 USD.

I for one feel that Mac users are generally good at specific tasks, while PC (Win/Lin) users are more adventurous.

Take a rat in a maze. You run him through it long enough, he can do it blind folded. Mac users are like that. The things that Macs allow them to do, they do great. But everything else they suck at.

And no, PCs do not require a higher level of expertise. There's just so much more you can do with them, you need to learn.

Not to operate on a basic level. But to truly be adventurous, you would need some basic knowledge.

Ever notice that you can buy a PC for under a $1000, but not a Mac?

On that budget, I will take a PC.
