Any examples? Because for the life of me I havn't seem a single thing that the
Mac does that is noticable better then what I do on my work Windows PC. Sure
some of the stuff is probably better then linux, some of the linux desktop type
app are a little limited but as i said... linux does all I want anyhow.
I do know a number of people with PowerMacs and others, the think that really
strikes me is that they all seem to have installed Fink and a number ported
Linux apps. Which seems to defeat the point to me of getting a Mac in the first
Oddly my first computer was an Apple, I first stared programming (basic inbuilt
on ROM) on it when I was fairly little (6/7ish) but that was a long time ago
