I honestly don't see what all the fuss is aboot with Macs, given the learning curve necessary to master an entirely different OS. That said, people who have them love them, but I still am unconvinced that I would see many benefits. I've assembled, repaired, and reinstalled operating systems hundreds (maybe into the thousands) of times, but I am an Apple virgin...Gates would be proud. It's time to build another desktop for myself, and was looking at a hackintosh...a PC hardware computer that legally runs the latest Mac operating systems. That way, if I hate the Mac way of doing things, I can always just wipe the hard drive and go back to Windows operating system. It's completely on the up-in-up by the way, as there's a new loader that allows the Mac OS to be installed without any hacking or altering of the original source code, thus abiding by the original TOS of the operating system. Any thoughts from Mac users...are they really that great?
