    I can see the point of using Linux on a PC that would otherwise use Windows, but why use Linux on a modern Mac, given that MacOSX is based on UNIX?




    Developing in both environments. Working in enterprise markets that have Linux inroads and not OS X.



    Put both on the same box and you are more efficient.

(very nice but somewhat monotonous).



    What part are you stuck on in NFS?

    maybe others have said it.. but with a MacIntel you can have em all..



    I actually have a 12inch PB 1.33G4 and a Shuttle that I use just for gaming. Its a great mix.. and I'm happily playing BF2 a few hours a day

    Well, I'm happy some people are prepared to switch to PC's (for whatever reason - I couldn't). It's better that you do - coze there has to be a competitive market between your PC and your Mac - leading to better deals on both platforms (or at least on the Mac platform). I know there are a lot of you people just ready with all the arguments about how good a deal a Mac is - so what?, put under pressure of Mac-to-PC switchers I think there maybe some more movements to a an even better deal.. It's all to the good.



    cheers.

    p.s. I may be in a minority here as I don't give a monkies a** about Apple PLC (inflated) share price.

    650, please, my 840AV smokes it so beyond belief I almost feel sorry to call you a Quadra user. I?m a spec whore, I?m a spec whore, and once again I?m a spec whore.

    Me too, but again I?d buy a Bang & Olufsen system over a Denon any day, not because it?s superior but I like inflated luxury goods that normal poor people can?t afford. Now if we can only get rid of those pesky poor bastards known as iBook/iMac users. Yes I?m a prude but I?m a proud member, down with poor people.



    Did I come off as a bad person here?

    **Feel free to flame the f*ck out of me




    Rubbish, rubbish, what's wrong you don't like working at your computer experience? You expect everything to be magically given to you, pre-packaged computing ecstasy? Fine, be happy with your OSX, me I?ll continue hitting myself in the nuts like some Opus Dei priest who believes hardship is the only way into computer bliss. Hitting self with a thorny whip, Suse, SMACK, Oh God yea, Ubuntu, SMACK, Oh God yeah!

    Sunilram and Relic,



    please stop it - I'm in a serious job, in an open plan office, and laughing out loud is frowned upon. Yes, yes, I know I shouldn't be looking at stuff like this during working hours, but it's a drug.



    Just lay-off the comedy, will ya both
