How about just buying a Mac? There's never been a better time, they're cheaper, faster, and run an operating system that doesn't have gay DRM that prevents anything. Microsoft treats you like a pirate because they are desperate to get every dollar for windows, in ten years I doubt they'll be around.

Mac OS X can now run Windows better than any PC, so why bother?

If I install a pirated version of Windows on a Mac, guess what buddy? The Windows Genuine Advantage is still thier.

A better idea would be to install OS X on a PC. Or screw it just install Kubuntu/Ubuntu. I just got a bunch of free disks shipped to me for free for Ubuntu (like 15 of them) including some Kubuntu ones.

Well letting Mac OS run on a PC would be nice and may not be far off. Ubuntu on ther other hand just isn't good enough to be a popular operating system. I've been a computer tech for a long time and it took me 3 days just to get my wireless USB adapter to work. It also took 6 hours and downloading supposedly illegal codecs to get my computer to play DVDs. No normal person would even dream of wasting that much time for an operating system.

I see support request posts everyday that show people spending DAYS solving Windows problems, including problems getting wireless configurations working. Windows is not immune to the same problems as the other OS offerings.

Least we forget Mac is proprietary, by choosing Mac your choosing to run what Apple dictates & not what you want.

We already have PC based OS's, Window's & Linux, what do we need a 3rd for!

If you run Window's & Linux at least you have a choice!

Why would you run Windows & Mac together anyway, if your going to run Windows your better off adding a Linux distro in with it & forget Mac altogether.
