    I didn't say that. I said mature enough not to start the debate. I didn't start the debate... I don't use linux.

    As for linux... well... people who use linux are probably just generally more mature than to start this debate.
    Hah! You've evidently never been caught up in a vi/emacs flamewar. Linux zealots are even more infamous than their Mac-loving counterparts.

    Few. ID usually releases Linux/Mac variants of their games at the same time as the Windows ones.

    Availability of software doesn't reflect on the quality of the platform itself (although it may be a measure of its usability for a given purpose). Windows isn't better because it has more games, although for a serious gamer it's probably the best prospect currently.

    I can crash anything, as I have read in other places, nothing is foolproof to a talented fool.

    But I luv my macs.

    I use xp pro, and have tried the media and home, and can sympathise with windows haters. XP pro seems to be a bit better.


    And just because millions of people drive chevy's, don't make it the best

    Just makes it popular.

    My windows machines have cost me on the average 3 times what my macs have cost. upgrades, peripherals, time fixing, etc.

    500 for the emac, 35 for an airport card and that is it. Works like a champ.

    1400 for the windows laptop, 200 memory, 60 anti hackware, two trips to service, 2 weeks hunting buggers on comp, drawing program crashes. Worst money ever spent. Had to have it to run a specific software

    next comp...powerbook... spend the money upfront and get rid of the hassles. If you have to have windows, get bootcamp
