Oh and for the record OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard is in fact, better then Windows 95.

no actually im thinking of getting a macbook pro but not for the os.. i havent really used mac osx but im sure if i took the time to get used to it that it might be ok.. but if its like the iphone where they sell you a phone and tell you how to use it and what you can install, then i wouldent like it
Then you really have no right to say an OS is rubbish if you have not taken the time to use it.

Its like saying baseball sucks when you have no clue what it is.
maybe well ive used it for maybe 5 mins... but i had the iphone which has the mac osx on it... for years

Correction, the iPhone has a very basic port of the OS: OS X. It is NOT the same OS. If it was then people could install adobe flash on it, java, etc. just by running the .dmg file.

my bad then... but my point was that with the iphone apple restrict you so much and tell you what you can and cant install.. i wonder if they are the same using their macs... but supposed to be a lot more stable and virus free right?..

ideneb it says on ur profile isent that to install hackint0sh rather then the actuall os? or is it the same? i remember i tried ages ago to install ideneb so i could get pwnage tool for the iphone couldent work out which drivers to put it wouldent install properly.

Have to support DarkNovaGamer. What is the use in bashing OSX???

You have used OSX 5 min and can tell its rubbish... Thats just flamebait

OSX is probably a big factor in getting MS back on track, resulting in W7.

I'm still amazed you tried to judge the OS by its stripped down phone version.

OS X is not restricted. Any program developed for it, can be installed. Assuming its compatible with the version (for example, trying to install Safari 4 update on OS X 10.5.4, which Safari 4 requires 10.5.7+ I believe).

It has less viruses in my opinion only because it is Unix-based and has very little market share.

Hackintosh'd PC's are those that run a slightly modified version of OS X. Its only modified enough to allow it to boot on a non-apple product. So basically changing around the kernel a bit to not check for an Apple EFI Firmware or anything similar. Its in my profile but I currently do not have it installed do to some minor issues I had with my graphics.

The same argument applied to the vast majority of Vista bashers.


I've never spent any length of time using OSX, so I don't make any blanket statements.

iTunes on Windows however, is another story all together...

Agree. I will never understand why people love W7 and hate Vista. But thats just my opinion.

Safari maybe, but I hate iTunes with an absolute passion.

Some of it is slightly irrational, but it's mostly for valid reasons
