For me, Macs are a bit too expensive and Windows get a lot more support, so I chose Windows... Vista, that is.

I know there's lots of complaints about Vista, with its resource consumption and high system requirements, but I only have Vista Home Basic, so it's not a bit like that. I have an old, 7yr old Win XP computer and it's really slow now. But it still works, so I use that usually for homework, etc. So Vista was really the only OS I used that's pretty fast lol. Plus the new interface are cool, just disable Windows Sidebar.

Mac OS X is an interesting OS. The first time I ever used a Mac was 2 years ago in High School. It was a bit hard to get used to it at first, but something new is cool nonetheless. I also know that Macs are safer, with a lot less exploits than Windows. Faster? I don't really know but I hear this one is.
Well I think these kinds of PC's are getting stronger because of the strong Apple brand due to iPods. I wouldn't be surprised if they actually make Macs more competitive with Windows soon because they have the money. Time will tell.

So what's your thoughts?

it doesn't have to be an opinion. You can vote because you have that OS.

I have both a Linux and Windows OS, but I use Vista more because I'm used to it. I like Linux, but I'm still learning how to use it.

Technically, my OS is Windows XP Media Center Edition. But all in all, it's still XP.

vista < dos < mac, xp < linux

vista - a xp with better standard visuals and less possible options and rights for users.
xp - best microsoft os so far
mac - the os is okay, less bugs than windows. but yeah apple products arent the cheapest ones.
linux - my favorite. visuals overwhelming -> compiz fusion, multiple desktops are unbelievable useful, 1 console command to install nearly every program just wonderful, thanks to WINE crossplattform support.

Compiz fusion makes everything really slow though. There's faster multi-desktop programs that's faster, but I must compiz is very fansy.

compiz is just a styling tool which isn't really necessaray. in a way like stylexp for windows. and it has so many options just deaktivate some or configurate them right and it will speed up

@zero
beryl and ubuntu 6 that was a time XD

information for all infidels:
- ubuntu 9.04 is the actual one and every year 2 there will be 2 versions releases. first number is the year 2nd is the month.
- beryl and compiz were 2 seperated projects in the past and now its combined to compiz-fusion with the options u see in the vidz above and much more XD

Right now I'm using Mac OS X because I just got a nice new laptop for college. I like it a lot, but it's not like I'm one of those annoying mac users who despises PCs. I can and will use whatever. It's nice to have the security of a mac OS especially when downloading lots of stuff, along with some nice Apple lifestyle type programs. However Macs get about 2 games a year which both came out for PC 10 years ago, sooo it has its setbacks. I won't vote for now.
