    You didn't give much of an option for those of us who have more than one computer. ;)

    Yes, up, running and very functional.

    Do you really think people will fight over fucking operating systems? Seriously?

    This may be a new level of looserdom on sj.

    Shit ... I voted before IJAG's post made me feel a little bit of shame.

    I don't know from one OS to another. I just know that I love PC over Macs ... that's after 15 years of fighting with everything from a Classic to a clamshell Ibook to a G3.

    Tomorrow I will (hopefully!) making the switch from XP to OS X, as I will be purchasing my first Mac. We'll still have a PC in the house, but that's the g/f.

    As a lifelong Windows guy, please reassure me I'm doing the right thing. I've done a lot of research & I'm pretty certain that the Mac will more than suit my needs. I'm just a little apprehensive.

    I'll take any PMs (or post here) with suggestions for must needed apps & downloads for my new machine.

    And Flash, I voted too...I just don't think anyone will "start a fight."

    I love Macs. And apparently so did the guy who stole my laptop out of my hotel room a couple of months ago.
