erm..everything that works on Windows, works on a mac....dude when the last time you played games, always waiting for the 'Mac' version, and ty Jenni, i don't support Macs at work(thankgod), but im sad to say there are interoperability issues between the 2 systems and sadly windows is the bigger bully.

And yes i love linux flavourless, so strong and robust and low on resource hungriness, what else could you ask for, and when you add X-windows to it to give it a WIMP frontend, oh yes....My bro and i decided if WoW was ever made for Linux we would build 2 machines and never ever have any problems with crashing or that again...c'mon Blizz
There's no place like /localhost

No interoperability issues?!?!  hahaha ... we have a couple of adamant mac users here on our windows network and they certainly have interoperability issues. I could list some but it's boring really.

My response to "why isn't this working?!"  is usually ... "because you're on a mac"

I have nothing against Mac's specifically ... I assume they're fine until you insist on using them on a windows network with windows applications.  It's a pain in the ass having to spend the extended time it takes to try and figure out a Mac problem over a Windows problem, and THEN deal with the pretentious "Macs do everything better, we don't need Windows" attitude from people who are computer n00bs anyway so don't know what they're talking about but still refuse to use Windows in a 99% Windows network.

/end rant

That said, I like Linux the best... Ubuntu ... yay!!!

lol, exactly luisa...my mac can do anything your windows box can...except work well with windows boxes...i know a few mac gurus, but seriously, why fucking bother? it's not like linux, where your entire resource system is available, it's just a simplified os that is good for recording sounds, video editing, and pissing of your IT department.

Macs are terrible for issues with routers and stuff. It's just a bunch of BS - they could make it so much simpler for a system claiming to be so simple. Macs are pretty and all (I hate the apple mice) and they have good security and no need to run virus scans and registry scans all the time like Windows.

Windows on the other hand, XP, anyway, is pretty good. It's pretty easy to work with, but when it crashes, it crashes hard.
