The most versatile, elegant, and powerful offering currently on the market. Mac OS X possesses a solid UNIX core for server work and tweaking, and yet also has a beautifully thought out and designed interface called Aqua. The current version as of this posting is 10.3, and 10.4 will be coming out soon. 10.4 will feature metadata searching and Coreimage GPU-based real-time image processing

A form of Unix for those who require simplicity and a monolithic design above the configurability and stability of Linux. It's just another tool to do a job, despite what both pro-mac and anti-mac zealots will tell you.
Since Raul could not find any OS X users wearing black turtlenecks and berets, he moved from OS 9 to Windows XP.

A popular theme for Windows.
I used to have Mac OS X as the theme of Windows XP. Now that I’m using Windows 7 and it’s not needed anymore.

An OS with a linux core and a shiny, colorful interface. It cannot run 98% of the games out there, the processors used to be horribly slow compared to any contemporary PC, and once you buy a Mac, Apple owns your soul since every accessory you buy must be from them or licensed by them, and they are very VERY aware of this. Now that Apple finally became unstupid and switched to the Intel platform, the processors are as fast (or exactly the same) as modern PCs, it can play PC games with Bootcamp and a Windows install, but the hardware still isnt caught all up, still uses cheap integrated sound cards.

Laptop with a geforce 8600M GT graphics card, Core 2 Duo processor, 4 gigs of ram, and a 15" screen: $2,000 from Dell, $4,000 from Apple. The difference? An Apple sticker.

Are Macs more stable? Yes! Why? Because any accessory is made, written, and tested by one company, APPLE! Just try to load drivers for a standard USB device not made specifically for an Mac. Kext loading sucks compared to windows driver loading! Windows has the BSOD, but Mac has the Kernel Panic! Just as annoying and nowhere near as helpful, no error messages, no notes, just "Power off now."
Apple just released a pack of 11 security patches last week, so no OS is virus or hack proof. The next time a Macaholic tells you Mac OS never gets viruses, tell him it will because of him, hes making it more popular, so virus writers will go after the bigger targets.

Whats Mac OS good for? Pretentious graphic designers and people who dont want to mess with drivers, deep system tweaking, and games. The computer newbs wont be scared off by a Mac, and they can do almost any task they can think of with included (or sold by Aplle) software.

What are PCs good for? Playing high-end games, causing driver headaches, and having high customization. The more experienced will get more out of it, but a brave newb could figure it out eventually.

Linux is for a completely different market (none since its free) and for a completely different type of computer user. Its customizable as legos, still cant play real games (emulation isnt the same,) and can go into nuclear meltdown if you rename the wrong file.
I have an Insperon 1520 Hackintosh (look it up). It tri-boots XP, Vista, and Mac OS X Leopard. Mac OS is shiny, very responsive, and extremely stable. Vista with a few days of work is also very very shiny, very responsive, and extremely stable if you know anything about computers and can google well. However, you dont have to sell your soul to Microsoft to buy a PC, and you can play all those games.

Let's compare Mac and Windows:

Pro Windows:
-Mac can't play 90% of games on the market
-Mac can't download 80% of programs on the internet
-Windows tend to be more powerful and have better graphics capabilities.
-Mac's are far over priced

Pro Mac:
-Nice user interface?
-No viruses? (not downloading gay porn helps, Windows users)

What do people actually do on a Mac?
Usually they surf the internet on their horribly laggy default web browser "Safari" because they have nothing else that they can do on their Mac.

The only reason they post these definitions on here is because they're pissed off that they spent to much money on a Mac, and they're trying to justify it.

Believe me, I can dual boot XP and OS X Leopard on my PC, and it is far over rated and shitty.
"Hey man! I just bought a $2000 Mac with Mac OS X! Am I cool yet?"

"No. You're still a fucking faggot. And Mac's suck"

General epithet for an unstable piece of shit.
1. That treehouse is a bit Mac OS X.
2. Calm down you bipolar bitch. You can be so Mac OS X sometimes.

stupid cheap ass imitation of Linux due to Apple's inablity to create an original OS.
