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
