You might find macs more stable, but thats probably because you are used to them. Windows biggest problem is the amount of people that target windows systems, I.E hackers.

something like 95% of the world uses windows, therefore 99% of hackers write virusses for windows, and other scripts that will excecute programs from IE. Your reletivly safe on a MAC because there is such a small userbase!

When using a PC you probably will be more comfortable with LINUX since linux is based on UNIX and MAC OS is also based on UNIX (thats why you have the same kind of root based directory trees)

For me, windows XP, I've literally never had any problems, never a crash, never needed to press reset, never an unresponsive program that either didn't rescue it's self or couldn't be terminated.
For windows users XP is a dream come true.

It was not an attack; it was a comment backed by certain hard opinions. I'm sorry for that - I get a bit emotional!

I can't back up or deny that; but is it worth the difference in money for something that doesn't work for every game or program that come out? Or something thats not going to be as fast as something more than 500 less?

Getting a bit too deep into social issues for a Computer Forum there! But again it wasn't a personal attack on you - it was me getting to emotional and I'm sorry for that. If you think the computers you have used have problems then you can ask on the General Software Help Board.

But people who debate opinions with personal attacks, like most people do when an opinion does not agree with theirs, just disgust me. What you said to me was uncalled for, and very immature.
It was! I am sorry about it! I do however hope you stay on here and keep on postin'!

I can list soooo many reasons why Mac is better than Windows
ive had one very long Mac vs PC debate on tech-forums and I think ive come up with the upper hand for Mac ALMOST ON MY OWN, there are a few other Mac fans on the forum that posted a few replies in it, but I did like 95% of the arguing FOR Macs

I meant Panther as in the Mac - eg. Mac OS X Jaguar, Mac OS X Panther.
