    Hi I'm a mac I am cool and hip and all fun and games.. except that only silly games will run on me, all the cool games are made for windows only. The ones that aren't are very expensive. Just like my hardware, which you can't upgrade by the way.

    Hi, I'm a PC, I want you to do well in business and school and learn a lot, so I have included extra crap you can buy, cause let's face it, nothing is free, and you can install power point and word programs, as well as financial reports and encyclopedias. I, however, am going to crash within the first 6 months of you bringing me home and will need to be rebooted at least twice a day to be at optimal performance, which is below standards anyway.


    Hi, I'm Linux... I do everything those other guys do without much of the hassle, oh and we have WoW now

    OBJECTION!!!

    I've Had My Comp Since June, And It Works Great. Never Had A Blue Screen Of Death. Ive Royally Screwed Up With My Optimization Induced Service Disabling...
    But The Entire Computer Has Never Crashed Before. The Display Driver A Couple Of Times.. But Thats Because I Only Have On Board Video.

    But You Are Correct on The Linux... I'm Jealous Of Twey. He Was Able To Install Kubuntu. For Some Reason I Cant Get The BIOS Set Up To Boot From CD.

    Kubuntu? I use Gentoo, thank you very much.

    I have, actually, heard of quite a few people who say their copies of Windows are perfectly stable. However, I've had only negative experiences myself.

    Blizzard, you made an error when you acted like a PC and Linux are two diffrent things, because MAC vs PC is not PC vs MAC vs Linux, because Linux is an operating system , pc means personal computer, you would LOAD linux onto a PC, lol. so you kinda created a demented loophole. you would say, hi im WINDOWS and i crash in 6 months, i sure hope not, cuz my computer is a month old, and i could easily compare it to Zuess himself 300fps Cs:s max quality fw00t , HEADSHOT , dont leave out BF2142 either =)

    Let's not forget that Linux also runs on many other architectures, including the Mac's PPC.

    And, if you're arguing "PC" as personal computer... 1. mac coined the term. 2. Macs are personal computers.
    PC generally refers to windows. It's not a 'windows computer' so people usually go with PC.

    I suppose it can be seen like this:
    OSX = Windows;
    Mac = ?
    So... people just call them PCs.

    As for linux... well... people who use linux are probably just generally more mature than to start this debate.
